William Henry Millais

[The Young Gardener]
16 x 11"
signed and dated l.r.: W. H. MILLIAS/ 1857
watercolour with bodycolour
Rather a historical curiousity now, William was the elder brother of John Everett Millais but painted a number of works.
William was with his brother when they travelled to Scotland with Ruskin and his then wife Effie, who John fell deeply in love with and eventually married after her divorce from Ruskin.
