Painter of the Week: John Everett Millais. Today: The Black Brunswicker (1860)
The Black Brunswicker (1860) is a painting by John Everett Millais. It was inspired in part by the exploits of the Black Brunswickers, a volunteer corps of the Napoleonic Wars, during the Waterloo campaign and in part by the contrasts of black broadcloth and pearl-white satin in a moment of tender conflict. The painting was originally exhibited with the plural title The Black Brunswickers, but is most commonly known by the singular form of the title. (From wikipedia)
John Everett Millais was an English painter and illustrator and one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
