Millais

Sir John Everett Millais (1829-96): Another famous English painter, who (with others) founded the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. Baronetted in 1885, he was president of the Royal Academy at the time of his death. Goodman (140) states that Millais and Sullivan were good friends, so it is not surprising that Millais was called upon to paint the portrait of Sullivan that hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
