John Everett Millais - Pizarro seizing the Inca of Peru

signed and dated 1846
oil on panel
16 3/8 x 19 3/8"
Believed to be a small, preliminary version of Millais' first exhibited picture at the RA in 1846, when he was only 17. The larger version is in the V&A.
It has been traced to the dealer Gambart who sold it for 50gns.
