John Everett Millais (8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896)  Waiting  Oil on canvas, 1854  Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, Birmingham, United Kingdom
Goback 55 / 76 Forward

Title: Waiting
Description:
 
John Everett Millais (8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896)
Waiting
Oil on canvas, 1854
Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, Birmingham, United Kingdom

The spring after being elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in November of 1853, Millais painted this modest, suggestive work in a style that moved away the sharp detail of the Ruskin portrait on view in this room. The ambiguity of her expression – is she anxious, expectant, conspiratorial? – matches the somewhat unresolved and free painting style in the foreground, as compared to the concision of narrative and landscape in earlier Pre-Raphaelitism.
