Princes in the Tower by John Everett Millais

Princes in the Tower by John Everett Millais

Historical and literary plots John Milles began his career with multi-figure historical, literary and religious scenes, and although over the years he has taken a great interest in the parade portrait and the landscape, he often returned to historical and literary plots. But now they are intertwined with new themes.

For example, the painting “Princes in the Tower” – an excellent portrait of the child, inscribed in the historical outline. The painting depicts the sons of Edward IV, who, according to legend, were killed in the Tower by order of their uncle, Richard III.
