This volume includes not only Millais's only published work of art criticism, the pithy Thoughts on Our Art of Today, but also the first extended biography and appraisal of his work by the important critic M. H. Spielmann. This hugely engaging Sketch gives both a warm and personal picture of the man and a level-headed evaluation of the qualities-and defects-of his work as they appeared to contemporaries. Neither essay has been in print for more than a century.
