Millais holds a palette with three brushes. He wears a jacket with a large square pattern.
Sir John, a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848, became from the 1860's onward a leading portraitist, responsible for some of the definitive images of the great men of Victorian England. Among these his likenesses of Sir John Hare and Sir Henry Irving are in the Garrick Club's collection (G0282 and G0323), as is a case in which are displayed a group of brushes and tubes of paint belonging to the artist (M0116). Millais was a member of the Club from 1855.
