Arthur Hughes (age 19), then a student at the Royal Academy, recalled meeting Millais in the Academy library. Millais asked him to 'sit…for a head in his picture, 'The Proscribed Royalist '.

The Diary of George Price Boyce 1852. 25 Mar 1852. With Clayton (age 24) to the R.A. to hear Leslie's 5th lecture on landscape painting, but in reality on the works of Cozens, Girtin, Constable and Turner, exquisite examples of which lined the walls. Crowded audience. Spoke to Frith. Came across J. E. Millais (age 22), only knowing him by sight. Leslie said that Constable painted almost entirely out of doors, lived in the country. Made many studies of skies (some fine ones on the walls) the sky being the key note of the picture. Gave names to the trees about him, and used to speak of a graceful ash called by him "the young lady who died of a broken heart," having had an ugly board nailed to its side with the warning "Trespassers Beware."

1853 to 1854. John Everett Millais 1st Baronet (age 23). "Waterfall, or [his future wife] Effie (age 24) at Glenfinlas".

1853. John Everett Millais 1st Baronet (age 23). Portrait of Frederick George Stephens (age 25).

Frederick George Stephens: On 10 Oct 1827 he was born to Septimus Stephens of Aberdeen and Anne Cook. In Sep 1847 the Pre-Raphealite Brotherhood was formed at 7 Gower Street, Camden, the home of John Everett Millais 1st Baronet. The seven founder members were Millais, brothers Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Michael Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, James Collinson, Frederick George Stephens and Thomas Woolner. The Diary of George Price Boyce 1852. 30 Dec 1852. Went down to Dante G. and William Rossetti's chambers at 14 Chatham Place, Blackfriars Bridge. Met there Wells, J. P. Seddon, Clayton, and Mr. Munro, Mr. Stephens and Mr. Hughes. Rossetti showed me his studio but none of his works (which is his way). He had for our entertainment a series of anastatic drawings designed and coloured by the Hon. Mrs. Boyle, some of which as beautiful in feeling, natural simplicity, and colour, and in poetical treatment as almost anything I have seen. They illustrate a nursery rhyme. Also a quantity of Gavarni's works, and a grand and most striking mask of Dante taken from a caste of his face in death; a tracing of his head in Giotto's fresco with the eye imperfect; a pen and ink sketch by Millais from Keats' "Isabella." In the physical way, roast chestnuts and coffee, honey, and hot spirits. His room has a jolly balcony overhanging the river, the reflection of the lights on the bridge and quays, etc., were charming. Conversation throughout delightful, resulting methought from the happy and gentlemanly freedom of the company generally. There was only one of D. G. Rossetti's works to be seen in the room, and that was a sketch, study of a man, back view. Gabriel Rossetti invited me to his studio next Thursday. On 09 Mar 1907 he died.

The Diary of George Price Boyce 1853. 06 Jan 1853. To Rossetti's (age 24), Blackfriars Bridge. Met there W. Holman Hunt (age 25), J. E. Millais (age 23), J. P. Seddon (age 25), Clayton (age 25), Munro (age 27), whose charming group of Francesca and her lover was in Rossetti's studio, Stephens, Blanchard, C. Lucy, a Scotchman and a foreigner. Millais (age 23) somewhat egotistical and little real, his attention being easily distracted. He jerked out some good remarks. Spoke highly of Ruskin (age 33) as a friend of Art; said that [his future wife] Mrs. R (age 24). was sitting for one of his pictures1. Hunt (age 25) struck me as a thoroughly genuine, humorous, good-hearted, straightforward English-like fellow. Said he was bound for Syria before long. Millais spoke highly of Charles Collins (age 24) as a good religious man?

Note 1. Probably "The Order of Release".

The Illustrated London News 1853 May 07. 07 May 1853. It is time now that we speak of Millais (age 23) - Millais the Pre-Raffaelite; the "pretender" Millais that was; the "usurper" Millais that is; the "legitimate" Millais that perhaps (much virtue in that little word) may be; and who has certainly a larger crowd of admirers in his little corner in the Middle Room than all the Academicians put together command; ay, and a crowd intent on what they are about—a good sticking crowd, who, having once taken up their position opposite the object of their homage. are not inclined very soon to move on. but stand there gaping, and staring. and commenting upon the wondrous effects, without any regard to the pressure from behiml of crowds pre. paring to occupy their place. Truth to say. Mr. Millais. in this "Order of Release", has achieved for himself an "order of merit" worth more than any academic hononr. and has earned a fame which a whole corporate academy might be proud to portion amongst its constituent members. Whilst we admit— nay, assert this—we would by no means wish to be understood as enrolling ourselves incontinently of this young artist's "party " (for there is partisanship in everything, even in art); but simply as asserting that Pre-Raffaelitism (or rather the artists who have been foolishly styled Pre-Raffaelites) is a "great fact." and perhaps may lead to the regeneration of art in this country; and we may add that those who did us the honour to read our remarks upon this very subject last year. will perceite that what we now state is perfectly consistent with, indeed confirms, what we then. with somewhat more of reserve and hesitation. put forth. But more of this anon. when we come to engrave the Order of Release," which we hope to do next week. In the meantime. we will only add that the subject is simply that of a wife, with child in her arms. coming with an order of release for her husband, who has been taken in the Civil Wars. The husband, overcome with emotions, and weak from a recent wound (his arm is in a sling). can but fall upon her neck and weep: the woman, "firm of purpose," sheds no tear; she nas none to shed; but her eye is red and heavy witli weeping and waking; and she looks at the stern and unconcerned gaoler with a proud look. expressing that she has won the reward for all her trouble past. The colouring. the textural execution, are marvellous (for these degenerate days); but of these we have not room to say more at present. Mr. Millais has another picture, "A Proscribed Royalist, 1651," concealed in the trunk of an old tree, whom a young lady stealthily visits to supply him with bread; but, though itself a capital specimen of executive skill, it by no means carries the poetic interest of the other work, nor in colouring is it so harmonious.

The Diary of George Price Boyce 1854. 08 Apr 1854. J. E. Millais (age 24) and Munro called on me at Russell St. The former stayed some time and appeared much interested in my sketches, especially those taken in the neighbourhood of Dinan, and some few near Bettws. He thought I painted a good like old Hunt—wish I had a little of his genius! He wanted to finish his picture of Ruskin (looking on falling water) from some spot nearer than the Highlands. I recommended him the neighbourhood of Capel Curig. He suggested our exchanging sketches. Rossetti (age 25) came in at 3 and stayed till 10, working a greater part of the time on the old drawing I have of his, in which I cut out the head of the dancing boy and inserted a fresh piece of paper at the back. He improved it much in parts, especially the heads, but left it unfinished. He said he thought the most beautiful combination of colour in a picture to be green, blue, and carmine, all inclining to purplish, but the general tone of picture colour to incline to vellow. An opal I showed him elicited this. He gave me 2 pen and ink sketches made some time ago—one of his first idea of the drawing "to caper nimbly in a lady's chamber," and the other a Siren followed by two men in a boat. I am to give him a sketch in return. He lent me F. & G.'s edition of Hugo's "Notre Dame de Paris" with some fine illustrations by Meissonier and Legrand. He told me in conversation that W. H. Hunt (age 27) had a morbid conviction of his own ugliness and desired that all record of him to the present in the way of portraits or letters should be destroyed.

On 15 Jul 1854 the marriage of John Ruskin (age 35) and [his future wife] Euphemia "Effie" Gray Lady Millais (age 26) annulled by the Commissary Court of Surrey on the grounds of John Ruskin being "incapable of consummating the same [marriage] by reason of incurable impotency".

The Diary of George Price Boyce 1855-1857. 27 Jun 1857. To P.R.B. Exhibition in Russell Place .... I found my little "Sunset" sketch in North Wales mounted in a preposterously wide gilt flat, whereas I had left it in my room mounted on white paper. A lot of the foreground is covered by the mount which completely spoils the sketch and looks ridiculously pretentious besides. Saw (at Hogarth's) a rather clever caricature-etching founded on Millais' "Dream of the Past" picture, to which the outlines were pretty strictly kept to. Millais (age 28) himself is the old Knight, Rossetti (age 29) the girl in front, Holman Hunt (age 30) the child behind. Ruskin (age 38) the ass on which they are riding and which is by far the best thing in the etching in every respect.

On 19 Sep 1857 [his son] George Millais was born to John Everett Millais 1st Baronet (age 28) and [his wife] Euphemia "Effie" Gray Lady Millais (age 29) at Bowerswell.

The Diary of George Price Boyce 1855-1857. 19 Nov 1857. Adjourned to Millais' (age 28) house, just taken, No. 16 York Terrace, at about 4, and not finding him in waited and had a long and very pleasant chat with his wife [[his wife] Euphemia "Effie" Gray Lady Millais (age 29)], who has a lovely and passionate face, and whose manner is particularly engaging and ladylike withal. At her request, and afterwards backed by Millais, stayed to dinner, after which she left and I had a long chat on divers subjects with him. He spoke about Ruskin (age 38), whom he thinks desperately ill off, and of the portrait he painted of him in Scotland, which he thought the finest thing in the way of portraiture he had yet done, and said he wanted it for the exhibition (R.A). He seemed astonished when I told him I had seen it in Ruskin's bedroom?

In 1858 [his daughter] Effie Millais was born to John Everett Millais 1st Baronet (age 28) and [his wife] Euphemia "Effie" Gray Lady Millais (age 29).
