"John Everett Millais (1829-1896) was one of the most significant English painters of the nineteenth century. In this new study of the artist's life and work, author Rosenfeld demonstrates that the development of Millais's art was at the forefront of contemporary painting throughout his life and not just his earlier Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces. This beautiful book includes 200 illustrations from Millais's best-loved work, archival material and a few surprises. And for the first time, Millais's landscapes, which influenced Van Gogh, and his portraits, which influenced Singer Sargent, are given due attention."--Publisher's website.
