Sir John Everett Millais
===============================

Substrate: Premium Matte paper
Bleed: Full (image is edge to edge)

Product Notes: Wonderful print for less than the major poster/print resellers. We take great pride in selecting only the highest quality images and do as much as we can to preserve the artist's original intent for the piece (many of the art and artists selected loved print-making as well).

It took Millais seven years to design twenty images inspired by New Testament Parables for the Dalziel Brothers, and the resulting prints are considered pinnacles of wood engraved illustration. The artist wrote to his publishers, "I can do ordinary drawings as quickly as most men, but these designs can scarcely be regarded in the same light—each Parable I illustrate perhaps a dozen times before I fix [the image]." After completing a design, Millais transferred it to a woodblock coated with "Chinese" white for skilled engravers to carve. Finally, he reviewed proofs, and final adjustments were made before the final printing.

The Parable of the Good Shepherd appears in John 10:11-14 and tells of a man willing to lay down his life to protect his sheep. Pre-Raphaelite ideals shaped the combination of detailed naturalism and down-to-earth imagery to produce a work distinctly different than most religious art of the period.
