In keeping with the tenets of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood , of which he was a member, Millais used bright colours, gave high attention to detail and faithful truth to nature. This rendition of Ophelia is the epitome of the PRB style; first, because of the subject matter, depicting a woman who has lived a life awaiting happiness, only to find her destiny on the verge of death: the vulnerable woman is a popular subject among Pre-Raphaelite artists.

Also, Millais utilizes bright, intense colours in the landscape to make the pale Ophelia contrast with the nature behind her. All this is evident in the vivid attention to detail in the brush and trees around Ophelia, the contouring of her face, and the intricate work Millais did on her dress.
Millais produced Ophelia in two separate stages: He first painted the landscape, and secondly the figure of Ophelia.
Ophelia In My Arms
Having found a suitable setting for the picture, Millais remained on the banks of the Hogsmill River in Ewell —within a literal stone's throw of where fellow Pre-Raphaelite William Holman Hunt painted The Light of the World —for up to 11 hours a day, six days a week, over a five-month period in This allowed him to accurately depict the natural scene before him.
Millais encountered various difficulties during the painting process.
He wrote in a letter to a friend, "The flies of Surrey are more muscular, and have a still greater propensity for probing human flesh. I am threatened with a notice to appear before a magistrate for trespassing in a field and destroying the hay Certainly the painting of a picture under such circumstances would be greater punishment to a murderer than hanging. Millais oversaw the building of a hut "made of four hurdles,  like a sentry-box, covered outside with straw".
According to Millais, sitting inside the hut made him feel like Robinson Crusoe. William Holman Hunt was so impressed by the hut that he had an identical one built for himself. Ophelia was modelled by artist and muse Elizabeth Siddal , then 19 years old. Millais had Siddal lie fully clothed in a full bathtub in his studio at 7 Gower Street in London. When Ophelia was first publicly exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in , it was not universally acclaimed. A critic in The Times wrote that "there must be something strangely perverse in an imagination which souses Ophelia in a weedy ditch, and robs the drowning struggle of that lovelorn maiden of all pathos and beauty",  while a further review in the same newspaper said that "Mr.
Millais's Ophelia in her pool The Pre-Raphaelite painters bring us radiant women who are, at the same time, the most desirable and most frightening that exist. It was exhibited in Tokyo in and travelled there again in The painting has been widely referred to and pastiched in art, film. The imagery of the painting is evoked in the prologue of Lars von Trier 's Melancholia , where Kirsten Dunst 's character Justine floats in a slow-moving stream.
Ophelia was purchased from Millais on 10 December by the art dealer Henry Farrer for guineas. Farrer sold the painting to B. Windus, an avid collector of Pre-Raphaelite art, who sold it on in for guineas. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Retrieved 11 April Ophelia 1. He took me by the wrist and held me hard, Then goes he to the length of all his arm, And with his other hand thus o'er his brow He falls to such perusal of my face As a would draw it. Long stayed he so. At last, a little shaking of my arm, And thrice his head thus waving up and down, He raised a sigh so piteous and profound That it seemed to shatter all his bulk And end his being. That done, he lets me go, And, with his head over his shoulder turned, He seemed to find his way without his eyes, For out o' doors he went without their help, And to the last bended their light on me.

At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone. White his shroud as the mountain snow— Larded with sweet flowers, Which bewept to the grave did—not—go With true-love showers.
