EDITORS COMMENTS
The print titled "Waking, 1865-67" captures a moment of transition and growth in the life of a young girl. Painted by John Everett Millais, this oil on canvas artwork is part of a pair, with the other piece titled "Asleep. " The title suggests that this painting represents not just the act of waking up from sleep but also symbolizes the awakening of the girl as she grows older. Intricate details fill the composition, showcasing Millais' skillful technique. The discarded books and toys scattered around her signify her leaving behind childhood interests and embracing new experiences. Above her head hangs an open doored birdcage, empty and waiting to be filled with possibilities. The color palette used in this artwork adds depth and emotion to the scene. The warm tones create a cozy atmosphere within what appears to be a bedroom setting. Every element in this painting tells its own story, inviting viewers to interpret their meaning. "Waking" invites us into a world where time stands still for just a moment as we witness this young girl's journey towards adulthood. It serves as a reminder that growing up involves shedding old layers while embracing new beginnings. This piece can be found at Perth Museum & Art Gallery in Scotland, offering visitors an opportunity to appreciate Millais' artistic brilliance firsthand.
