John Everett Millais was one of the premier British artists during the Victorian era and had an extended career which allowed for experimentation in his styles of art as well as an achievement of other accomplishments such as gaining the title of baronet and becoming the president of the Royal Academy. The paintings of John Everett Millais number near four-hundred but the works which have found the greatest lasting popularity are those from his Pre-Raphaelite period, of which many admirable works of art still exist today. Millais was awarded a place at the Royal Academy School when he was eleven years old due to his innate talent and ability to keenly observe and record his vision. He would later marry Effie Ruskin, who had her marriage to famous critic John Ruskin annulled shortly before wedding Millais. They would come to have eight children together which would be a great motivator for success and productivity in the career of Millais as he had a quite large family to provide for. Along with the works of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais paintings became the basis for a group which came to be known as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The Pre-Raphaelite oil paintings of John Everett Millais are considered his early works in most cases and are often times based on or even inspired by literary works. Some of the most accomplished drawings and engravings by Millais were done for illustrations in literary and poetic works by Moxon Tennyson and Anthony Trollope. One of the crowning achievements of Millais’ career is his painting Ophelia which exhibits a level of detail, particularly in the nature surroundings of the famous Ophelia scene, that is barely rivaled even in Pre-Raphaelite painting while also encompassing a sense of melancholy that elevate the painting of John Everett Millais to that of a masterpiece. Many other John Everett Millais paintings that were created between the time of his major trends during his artist career can be seen as a precursor to the impending Aesthetic movement which became very popular during the Victorian era in Britain and around Europe. The later works of John Everett Millais became much more vibrant and more bold and free with brushstrokes as he gained confidence in the quality of his art and began to move away from the period of Pre-Raphaelite artwork. John Everett Millais artwork became almost impressionistic at times, which was criticized by some of his contemporaries by being seen as an effort to become more commercially successful, which he did thanks to the increased popular appeal of his works. One of his most famous paintings, Bubbles, even became a widely recognized advertisement for Pear’s Soap and became almost representative of the era. Some of the other significant John Everett Millais paintings are titled: Ophelia, Cherry Ripe, Autumn Leaves, Christ in the House of his Parents, The Somnambulist, Lorenzo and Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, A Huguenot on St. Bartholomew’s Day, and Chill October.
