Cult of Beauty at the V&A revisited

Millais, 'Esther'

Millais, 'Esther', 1863-5

I forgot to include this magnificent thing in the previous post, but I thought it was the most glorious thing in a sumptuous exhibition, and I hadn’t seen it before.  The slash of yellow is really something with the ikat weave of the gown glowing against it.  Just gorgeous.  I seldom want to take things home with me from big exhibitions, but this one was just stunning.  And I am a sucker for anything on a yellow background.
