John Everett Millais
‘The Order of Release 1746’, Sir John Everett Millais, Bt, 1852–3 | Tate
The Order of Release 1746 (painted1852-3) by John Everett Millais. Apparently, Millais went to great pains to make the scene authentic. For the tartans he consulted Robert McIan's Highland Clans. We think the soldier wears the Gordon tartan and the little girl the Drummond. Do you agree?
