John Everett Millais - part 8

1881 Self-Portrait
oil on canvas
Uffizi Gallery, Florence

John Everett Millais was  an English painter and book illustrator (1829 - 1896). A child prodigy who was hard-working as well as naturally gifted, he became the youngest ever student at the Royal Academy Schools when he was 11, and although he suffered some temporary setbacks in his twenties, his career was essentially one of the great Victorian success stories. In 1848, with Rossetti and Holman Hunt, he founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and had his share of the abuse heaped against the members until Ruskin stepped in as their champion.

For full biographical notes see part1, and for earlier works, see parts 1 - 7 also.
