Following the break-up of this short-lived avant garde movement, he went on to become the most famous and successful, as well as one of the most creative, of all Victorian painters. He was unique in pioneering a new land of psychological realism in art, presenting human beings in complex situations from the past and present that engage the viewer's empathy." "Through the authors' engaging essays as well as the extensive colour illustrations, Millais emerges as an artist of extraordinary diversity and vitality whose art embraced a wide variety of subjects from inventive historical anecdotes to enigmatic character studies and brilliant society portraits. His magnificent late Scottish landscapes, shown here as a group for the first time for over a century, are unique in terms of their scale and expressive energy. Millais is revealed to be one of the most challenging and innovative artists of the nineteenth century."--Jacket.
