Van Gogh Museum presents John Everett Millais
From 15 February until 18 May the Van Gogh Museum presents John Everett Millais. Millais (1829-1896) was the foremost painter of the English Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and Britain’s most successful artist of the latter half of the 19th century. His jewel-like, highly detailed paintings exude a dreamy, serene atmosphere. The exhibition, organised in cooperation with Tate Britain in London, is the first monograph review since 1967 and the first exhibition since 1898 to cover all aspects of Millais’ career.

The exhibition reveals the shifts in Millais’ style, from the most audacious ‘primitive’ and confrontational works dating from his Pre-Raphaelite period to popular nostalgic subjects including his famous society portraits and the evocative late landscapes that also charmed Vincent van Gogh. Central to the exhibition is Millais' internationally famed Ophelia, inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Alongside this exhibition, visitors can view a selection of contemporary photographs that show remarkable parallels with the work of Millais and especially his famous painting Ophelia.
