John Everett Millais
Ferdinand Lured By Ariel 1849, John Everett Millais, In William Shakespeare's The Tempest, Ariel is a mischievous spirit who had been imprisoned by a witch and freed by the magician Prospero. Ariel helps Prospero reconcile with his enemies, regain his throne, and marry off his daughter. In John Milton's Paradise Lost, Ariel is one of the fallen angels who accompany Satan. In Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock, he is one of the comic protectors of the heroine Belinda. Sir John Everett Millais, 1st Baronet, PRA (UK: /ˈmɪleɪ/ MIL-ay, US: /mɪˈleɪ/ mil-AY; 8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896) was an English painter and illustrator who was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He was a child prodigy who, aged eleven, became the youngest student to enter the Royal Academy Schools. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded at his family home in London, at 83 Gower Street (now number 7). Millais became the most famous exponent of the style, his painting Christ in the House of His Parents (1849–50) generating considerable controversy, and he produced a picture that could serve as the embodiment of the historical and naturalist focus of the group, Ophelia, in 1851–52.
