Art influenced by the art and themes of the Pre Raphaelites with biographies, auctions and information on these artists.
The Ruskins’ marriage had been annulled on the grounds that it had not been consummated, because he a] didn't like women in general, b] didn't want to try sex or c] didn't like his wife.Millais was a hero. He married Effie, saved her from a nightmare and brought her great joy. So I don't think that portrait destroyed John Ruskin' marriage. I think Ruskin did his own destroying.
I'm not so sure about Effie as you seem to be; Ruskin was a genius but like many such, odd.
