Goback 8 / 76 Forward

Title: The Princes
Description:
 
John Everett Millais (1829-1896)
The Princes in the Tower, 1878
Oil on canvas
Royal Holloway College, University of London, Egham

Millais’s interpretation of this famous event in British history represents the sons of Edward IV, the princes Edward and Richard, anxiously anticipating the arrival of the assassins sent by the usurper Richard III. In presenting these attractive, apprehensive and long-haired boys against a staircase, Millais was aiming at historical accuracy, alluding to the discovery by workmen in 1674 of the skeletons of two children under a staircase in the Tower of London.
