Footnotes

  • John Guille Millais was the son of Pre-Raphaelite artist, Sir John Everett Millais and is most renowned for his natural history subjects and ornithological studies with fellow artist, Archibald Thorburn. Not only was Millais an artist and illustrator, like his father, but also an author. He spent the majority of his life travelling the world recording what he saw in his artwork and illustrated books.

    The present painting is an illustration of seal hunting from his travelogue: Newfoundland and it's untrodden ways, 1907. It was the culmination of his exploration of Canada and Newfoundland and has become known as one of the most celebrated books on wildlife and hunting.
