Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

John Millais was born into an affluent middle class family in Southampton, England. He became the youngest pupil ever at the Royal Academy Schools when he arrived there at the age of eleven and he was the youngest to complete the course five years later. Technically he was extremely competent and was the star pupil, but he was criticized for lacking a certain breadth of imagination and vision, which is ironic given his future as a Pre-Raphaelite.

John Millais was a member of the original (showing 500 of 1909 characters).
