A founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896) is best known for his portraits of Bubbles, used for years in advertisements for Pears soap, and his Ophelia which hangs in Tate Britain. A giant of 19th century artistic society who became President of the Royal Academy, Millais married Effie Ruskin after her marriage to the critic John Ruskin was annulled, and went on to father eight children. This sumptuous appraisal of his career provides a feast of glowing images and a wealth of information about the man himself

John Everett Millais (1829 - 1896) was one of the most significant English painters of the nineteenth century, successful and respected during his career, honoured as the first painter to be created a baronet, he remains, as recent exhibitions of his work have demonstrated, equally well known today. Whilst his substantial contributions are rarely, if ever, denied, in past art historical accounts of Millais's long career there has been an unfortunate tendency to superficially distinguish between the early promise of his Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces and the perceived commercial and traditionalist orientation of his later works. In this new study of the artist's life and work Rosenfeld argues that such readings are far from accurate, demonstrating that the development of Millais's art was at the forefront of contemporary painting throughout his life. At the same time as Manet and Monet were liberating their nation's art from traditional forms and subjects, Millais was leading British art with the bravura manner and looser symbolic associations of Aestheticism (the most important movement after Pre-Raphaelitism), which in turn influenced the portraits of John Singer Sargent and the landscapes of Vincent Van Gogh.

I just received my copy today and am thoroughly pleased with it. I have only skimmed the writing but the images are beautiful and represented in full color. So many of them I have not seen before!!! When I buy an art book I often judge it by a quote from Gustav Klimt. "Anyone who wants to find out about me - as an artist, which is all that's of interest - should look attentively at my pictures." I am often disappointed with art books that print the images half the size of the page utterly drowning them in white borders or representing them in black and white (this is a crime in this day and age). None of that here!!! Congratulations to Mr. Rosenfeld on this beautiful, must own book.

A well produced book with a good representation of Millais works. I have one complaint, however. Many of the paintings depicted (in particular the works of artists who are being contrasted to Millais) are presented too small to fully appreciate. I don't understand why publishers continue to produce books with this glaring flaw. With all do respect to the authors of these art books, regardless of how noteworthy their text, it is the art that people are interested in. If space is at such a premium, and additional pages out of the question, edit out more of the writing and enlarge the images.

Why this should be so difficult to understand is beyond me. This is a complaint that has been leveled against such works for ages. If there is a rational reason for these editorial decisions I'd sure like to know what it is. Suggestion to art book publishers - convinced that this habit is not likely to change, please include a magnifying glass in all future volumes.

Don't let this peripheral rant dissuade you from purchasing this book. Millais is one of the key figures of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Phaidon has added a worthy addition to the available works on this important movement. This volume filled a noticeable void in their series of Pre-Raphaelite artists and they are to be commended for making them available.

I have a couple of books on the pre-Raphealites, and most of the time they include the same paintings, and it is difficult to get a deeper survey of any of the main artists work. This book rights that wrong, for Milais at least, a highly talented and largely forgotten painter today. It includes much of his later work, which is often ignored (with the exception of the notorious 'bubbles' painting- which curiously enough, has a long and complex history in painting!)

I have been familiar with Millais's art for over twenty years, but only his your with the PRB. This monograph is a very complete catalog of all his work. His portraits are superb and are reminiscent of Sarget. The text is very informative about his life and work including his relationship with John Ruskin and Ruskin's wife who eventually divorced him and married Millais. This book is a great addition to any art library.

What a wonderful book about a sadly neglected artist whose reputation may be on the upswing. There are an abundance of very high quality pictures, most full-page size, as well as a text that is highly informative about both the paintings and Millais's life. I found the analysis of paintings often quite insightful. Let's not forget the dramatic soap opera story of the Ruskin / Effie / Millais triangle, notorious for the fact that Ruskin would not consummate the marriage and Effie eventually found love with Millais. The book includes ravishingly beautiful full-page reproductions of many of Millais's masterpieces, such as Isabella, Christ in the House of his Parents (that outraged Dickens), Mariana, Ophelia, Autumn Leaves, The Vale of Rest (which I wish were larger), Hearts are Trumps, Chill October, Halcyon Weather, and Dew-Drenched Furze. It's a perfect way to get acquainted with a very great British painter. The book is a steal at this price.

After viewing several Millais books, I liked this the best. The reproductions of his work are vivid and reprinted large enough to see the details. A great book to study John Everett Millais and his work!

Amazing. Very beautiful and informative book.
Fascinating read that chronicles both the life and the art of the famed Pre-Raphaelite. The reproductions are gorgeous and it is well written and sustained my interest throughout.
