was an English Classicist
painter and illustrator who was born in Southampton, England. He was the youngest student of the Royal Academy of Arts. His prominent family supported him, which greatly benefited his reputation. He was a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, to which another English artist, Ford Madox Brown,
later belonged. Millias’ works were highly controversial: for example, the image Christ in his Parents’ House
shows the Holy Family working in a carpentry workshop. His early works are characterized by a great attention to detail and the beauty of nature. Another of his works, Mariana, was inspired by William Shakespeare’s play. In 1855, he married the wife of his friend, John Ruskin. They had eight children. After marriage, Millias changed his style to better support his large family. He was inspired more by old masters such as Diego Velazquez. He tried to project their style into his historical paintings (eg. < a href=millais-john-everet-pizarro-porazi-inky-v-peru-ido-5443> Pizzaro Defeats the Incas in Peru). He spent his old age painting bleak and hardly accessible landscapes.
