John Everett Millais, Autumn Leaves,1856, Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester, UK


British artist John Everett Millais (1829-1896) was a leading member of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, which often focused on historical and mythological subjects.  However, the paintings featured here are of young girls including his two sisters-in-law (on the left) in Autumn Leaves.
