John Everett Millais

$ 2.99

Founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the English painter Sir John Everett Millais was a principal figure of nineteenth century British art. Along with Rossetti and Holman Hunt, he confronted the art establishment with a daring challenge to ignore 500 years of history and the corrupting influence of Raphael. A remarkable range of paintings sought a bold return to the abundant detail, intense colours and complex compositions of the early Renaissance. Millais produced meticulously detailed artworks, forming an extraordinary and diverse oeuvre that infused new life into British art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Millais’ complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
