Millais, John Everett - The first and second sermon
Type of Spiritual Experience
Two marvellous pictures which show what Millais really thought about religion. As part of the Establishment and a respected figure he was expected to go to church and I'm sure like most spiritually minded people he had a great respect for Jesus. But the established Church has little to do with the teachings of Jesus.
Painted after he married Effie and as such no longer inspired by unrequited love.
