Title: Portrait
Description:
 
John Everett Millais (1829-1896)
Portrait of the Painter, 1880
Oil on canvas
Lent by the Galleria degli Uffizi, Collezione degli Autoritratti, Florence

Fellow artist Frederic Leighton suggested this commission the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, for their collection of artist selfportraits. Millais shows himself at work, with a palette tucked in the nook of his left arm, brushes gripped through the bow, and a metal thinning pot clipped upon the near edge. This portrait hung with those of Velázquez, Bernini and Dürer, an exceptional honour for a living artist.
