OpheliaPRODUCT CODE: 00284
Ophelia is based on Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet. The scene that has been recreated is when Ophelia is floating in the river singing holding a red poppy flower a symbol to both sleep and death. What is interesting about this painting is the way the body has been position as a representation of a goddess or a martyr. In order to complete his work Millais used the 19 year old Elizabeth Siddal to pose as a model. He worked from the comfort of his home and having Elizabeth lie in a bath for hours on. Sir John Everett Millais, Bt 1829-1896 Date: 1851-2 Classification: painting Medium: Oil on canvas
