About this Item

An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dw. Particularly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new and still in the publisher's protective shrink-wrap.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 256 pages; 256 p. : ill. (chiefly col.)., facsim., ports. 30cm. Summary: John Everett Millais was one of the most successful and acclaimed British painters of the nineteenth century. A founder member of the radical Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, an acclaimed society portraitist, and an ambitious painter of historical themes, Millais ended his days as a Baronet and President of the Royal Academy. In this widely illustrated, thoughtful account of Millais's career, Jason Rosenfeld brings together biography, art history and an insightful and detailed analysis of individual paintings. Opening with a focused study of his much acclaimed, and now iconic Pre-Raphaelite paintings, in the second half of the book the author presents a fascinating reconsideration of the artist's often over looked later career. 2 Kg.

About this title

Synopsis:

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.
