Important note: We try in order to describe the art products as accurately as possible and to showcase them visually on the respective product detail pages. Although, the colors of the printing material, as well as the printing might differ marginally from the image on your screen. Depending on the settings of your screen and the condition of the surface, not all color pigments are printed 100% realistically. Since the fine art prints are processed and printed manually, there might as well be minor discrepancies in the exact position and the size of the motif.

Original information about the artwork by the museum (© Copyright - The Metropolitan Museum of Art -

Millais is best known as one of the artists who founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848. As a result of what have been called his "concessions to the sweetness of Victorian taste," he was made as associate of the Royal Academy in 1853. By the time he painted Portia, there was hardly a trace of the Pre-Raphaelite style in his work. Instead, he worked in an academic-realist manner and concentrated on the kinds of saccharine subjects that are now synonymous with Victorian painting.This picture was long incorrectly identified as a portrait of the actress Ellen Terry (1847–1928) in one of her most famous roles, Portia in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. In fact, it shows actress Kate Dolan dressed in the costume that Miss Terry wore in Act IV of the play. When the picture was exhibited at McLean's Gallery, London, in 1886, Shylock's line describing Portia was quoted in the catalogue: "A Daniel come to judgement! Yea, a Daniel!"X-rays and pentimenti indicate that Portia is painted over a study of the same figure in Greek costume. An early photograph documenting the original image was published in 1899.

In 1886 the male British artist Sir John Everett Millais created this artpiece. The version of the work of art had the size: 49 1/4 x 33 in (125,1 x 83,8 cm) and was painted with the technique of oil on canvas.
