"John Everett Millais (1829-1896) was the most talented, prolific and successful painter of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Following the break-up of this short-lived avant garde movement, he went on to become the most famous and successful, as well as one of the most creative, of all Victorian painters. He was unique in pioneering a new land of psychological realism in art, presenting human beings in complex situations from the past and present that engage the viewer's empathy." "Through the authors' engaging essays as well as the extensive colour illustrations, Millais emerges as an artist of extraordinary diversity and vitality whose art embraced a wide variety of subjects from inventive historical anecdotes to enigmatic character studies and brilliant society portraits. His magnificent late Scottish landscapes, shown here as a group for the first time for over a century, are unique in terms of their scale and expressive energy. Millais is revealed to be one of the most challenging and innovative artists of the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET

Time present and time past : the art of John Everett Millais by Paul Barlow ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Everett Millais (1829-1896) is undoubtedly among the most important of Victorian artists. In his day, and our own, he remains also the most controversial. While, during his lifetime, controversy centred around his early Pre-Raphaelite paintings, in particular Christ in the house of his Parents (1850), during the twentieth century the most intense criticism has been directed towards Millais's later works, such as Bubbles (1886), which has been widely condemned as sentimental 'kitsch'. These later paintings have been held up as the epitome of the degradation of art, against which avant-garde and Modernist pioneers struggled. None of the existing literature on Millais addresses the fundamental problem that this double-identity reveals. While there is extensive material on the Pre-Raphaelite movement in general, Millais's own work after the 1850s is rarely discussed in detail, despite the fact that he lived and worked for another 30 years after his abandonment of the Pre-Raphaelite style. Time Present and Time Past: The Art of John Everett Millais presents the first comprehensive account of Millais's artistic career from beginning to end. The book considers the question of 'high' and 'low' cultural status in debates during Millais's own day, and in subsequent critical thinking, situating Millais's art as a whole within this cultural framework

Phineas Finn by Anthony Trollope ( Book )
9 editions published between 1869 and 1875 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The novel is set against the background of the Reform Bill of 1867, and focuses on an Irish Member of the British House of Commons; in it Trollope explores the relations between the distinct elements of 'the United Kingdom'. Phineas has a personal chronicle which largely dominates the political calendar and it is noteworthy that Trollope wrote Phineas Finn at the same time as Gladstone's accession to power and the momentous consequences for Ireland that followed. Phineas Finn (1869) is the second of the Palliser novels, published between 1864 and 1880. As a group they provide us with the most extensive and telling expose of British life during the period of its greatest prestige. - Publisher

Kept in the Dark was published in 1882, the year of Trollope's death. Cecilia Holt is in search of a husband, and finds one but fails to tell him about a prior botched engagement to Sir Francis Geraldine. Much is made of this deception, but all ends in a happy reconciliation. As is characteristic in Trollope's novels, there's a marvelous sub-plot: the comic counterpoint of Cecilia's friend trying to snag Sir Francis
