Farewell (2)

John Everett Millais

Wood engraving by the Dalziels

6¾ x 4¼ inches

Anthony Trollope, Orley Farm, Vol 2, facing p.314.

A final embrace to close the book, which finishes on a note of parting and loss. The illustration demonstrates Millais’s interest in abstract effects, combining portraiture and gesture with the monumental forms of the women’s billowing crinolines.
