John Everett Millais (1829-1896) was a British painter, a founder member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) in 1848 (see ORossetti).
By the late 1850s he had dropped out of the PRB and his style became more fluent and less detailed.
One of his PRB works, Christ in the House of His Parents in 1850 (Tate Gallery, London), caused an outcry on its first showing, since its realistic detail was considered unfitting to the sacred subject.
In later works such as The Boyhood of Raleigh in 1870 (Tate Gallery, London), Millais pursued light, popular subjects.
