The British painter and illustrator John Everett Millais (1829 - 1896) was born into a well-to-do middle-class family from Jersey. His mother was an art and music lover and therefore promoted the young talent of her son. Millais later declared that he was all guilty to his mother. It was she who initiated the move from Jersey to London in 1838. There, Millais, considered a prodigy, attended the Sass's Art School at the age of 9 and won his first Silver Medal from the Society of Arts. Only 2 years later he was accepted at the Royal Academy of Art. At the age of 11, he was the youngest student to be accepted by the Academy. There, too, he won various awards, for example a gold medal for his work "The Tribe of Benjamin Seizing the Daughters of Shiloh". While at the Royal Academy, young Millais, known as The Kid, met William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Charles Rossetti . With them he founded in 1848 the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Millais was later recognized as the most talented of these three.

Millai's pre-Raphaelite works were highly controversial. Especially the painting "Christ in His Parents' House caused protests because he portrayed them as simple working-class people. Among the critics was Charles Dickens, who blamed Millai's blasphemy and lack of idealization. Millais found support in John Ruskin , one of the leading art critics of his time. He was a promoter of Millai's early style, which showed in images like "Ophelia". Ruskin invited Millais in 1853 to visit him in Scotland. There he met Ruskin's wife Effie. When she sat him for his painting "The Order of Release" model, the two fell in love. Effie, who had been unhappily married for many years, separated from her husband. After her marriage was annulled, she married Millais in 1855. The couple moved from London to Scotland to escape the ridicule of their then scandalous relationship.

The marriage changed Millai's style. He began to paint in a broader style, which Ruskin felt as a disaster. Millais had outgrown pre-raphaelism and sought new perspectives. However, critics like William Morris accused him of selling off and being interested in amassing wealth. Thus, his painting "A Child's World" was used for the advertising campaign of a well-known soap manufacturer. Millais's reputation did not hurt this. He was the first artist to be awarded the title of nobleman Baron. Shortly before his death, he was also appointed President of the Royal Academy. © Meisterdrucke
