A Baronet and president of the Royal Academy, Millais produced some of the most famous images of his time. His first Pre-Raphaelite work, The Carpenters Shop, had a dramatic effect on the critics; Charles Dickens famously described his portrayal of the Christ child as a hideous, wry-necked, blubbering, red-haired boy in a night-gown. Author Christine Riding analyzes his artistic career, his critics, and his audience, exploring the broader issues that preoccupied his contemporaries on the subject of art itself."--Jacket.
