Goback 18 / 76 Forward

Title: The Bridesmaid
Description:
 
John Everett Millais (8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896)
The Bridesmaid
Oil on panel, 1851
20.3 x 27.9 cm (7.99" x 10.98")
Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, United Kingdom

This actually illustrates an old supersitition, that if a bridesmaid passes a piece of wedding cake through the wedding ring nine times, she will see a vision of her future lover. The model was a Miss McDowall. 
This picture is also seen with the apparently incorrect title The Bride and All Hallow's E'en.
It was bought by a B. G. Windus and sold at Christie's in 1862 under the new title. In 1868 it was bought by Ernest Gambert.
