Event: Millais exhibition at Tate Britain
Date: September 26th 2007 – January 13th 2008

London’s Tate Britain is currently hosting an exhibition focussing on the work of an artist many believe to be one of the greatest Pre-Raphaelite painters to have lived.

Situated close to luxury London hotel 41, Tate Britain is paying homage to John Everett Millais in the first exhibition to examine the entirety of his career for more than 100 years.

According to the Museum’s website, Millais’s work from the 19th century has formed our “vision of Victorian womanhood”, as well as presenting numerous depictions of Shakespearian females such as Ophelia. Ophelia and Mariana, both existing parts of the Tate collection, are joined by pieces lent to the gallery specifically for the exhibition to provide a strong insight into the working mind of the Pre-Raphaelite artist.

Millais is also recognised as one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of artists, critics and poets active in the 19th century.
