Painter born in Southampton. Millais entered the Royal Academy schools at the age of eleven, exhibiting his first work at the RA aged sixteen. In 1848 together with William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti he formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He painted some of the movement's masterpieces, including Lorenzo and Isabella and Christ in the House of His Parents, works that also caused furious controversy. He became President of the RA after Leighton's death in 1896.
