John Everett Millais

Wood engraving by the Dalziels

6¾ x 4¼ inches

Anthony Trollope, Orley Farm, Vol 2, facing p.305.

A touching final embrace between Sir Peregrine and Lady Mason, who is forced to go into exile on the Continent. Millais greatly intensifies the text’s effects by showing the depth of characters’ feeling for each other.
