Fleming, the author of six other works on Victorian art, has penned the first in-depth biography of John Everett Millais since 1899, three years after his death. Millais achieved wealth and fame during his lifetime. Along with artist friends William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he was a founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, espousing a doctrine of decorative naturalism with an emphasis on striking color, minute detail, and historical, literary, and biblical themes. Millais captured the texture of velvet in his famous "Mariana," for instance, and, most famously, the watery death of "Ophelia." His brookside portrait of John Ruskin preceded a scandalARuskin's unconsummated marriage was later annulled, and his wife married Millais. Fleming gives us a portrait of a talented artist and his time. One quibble: we are offered 15 black-and-white reproductions of paintings but no pictures of Millais himself. A good companion to Russell Ash's illustrated survey Sir John Everett Millais (Pavilion, 1996); recommended for academic and large public libraries.AJoseph C. Hewgley, Nashville P.L.
