John Everett Millais - The Gipsy


Millais is not well known for his watercolours, but did use the medium for some illustrative work, and to make small saleable replicas of most of his popular figure paintings.The Gipsy is among the artist's early works, painted at the age of only 16 or 17. The setting may be Shotover Park, Oxfordshire, the home of an early patron, Mr Drury
