Description:

A founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, an acclaimed society portraitist, and an ambitious painter of historical themes, John Everett Millais (1829–96) ended his days as a Baronet and President of the Royal Academy. Along with more than 150 color reproductions, Jason Rosenfeld brings together biography, art history, and a detailed analysis of Millais's iconic Pre-Raphaelite paintings—including Ophelia, A Huguenot, Autumn Leaves, and the controversial Christ in the House of His Parents—followed by Rosenfeld's reappraisal of the artist's often overlooked later career. 256.

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.

About the Author: Jason Rosenfeld is Distinguished Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College, New York. His academic interests include British art, specifically Victorian, modern architecture, and contemporary art. Jason has published many articles and has been a frequent reviewer for Art in America and ARTNews. He was also a co-curator of the exhibition, 'The Post-Pre-Raphaelite Print' at the Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University, New York (1995), and contributed to the 'Pre-Raphaelite and Other Masters: The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection' exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2003). Jason also co-curated an exhibition on John Everett Millais at Tate Britain, London, September 2007 - January 2008, which travelled to Amsterdam, Fukuoka and Tokyo, and the exhibition "Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde," to be seen at Tate Britain, the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., the Pushkin Museum, Moscow, and the Mori Art Gallery, Tokyo in 2012-13.

Book Description Phaidon, 2012. Condition: New. A founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, John Everett Millais (1829-1896) was a commercially successful and artistically influential painter. Early paintings such as Isabella (1849) and Ophelia (1851-2) have remained popular, but his later work, although it led the Aesthetic movement, has been unjustly neglected. In this first monograph to appraise the artist's entire career, Rosenfeld shows how Millais's art was at the forefront of contemporary painting throughout his life. With over 160 reproductions.
