Excerpt from Sir John Everett Millais: His Art and Influence
There is no intention to give in these pages anything approaching a detailed personal history of Sir John Millais, or to treat at any length the facts of his private life. Such matters are better left to the biographers who deal with the man and desire to draw a portrait of him as he lived. What is offered here is an appreciation of his inﬂuence upon the art of his time, an estimate of the value of his intervention, as an artist, in the aesthetic movements that marked the years over which his career extended. Therefore only those personal details have been included which are important because they have some bearing upon his professional progress, or have helped to confirm him in a preference for a particular line of action.
