The Order of Release by Sir J E Millais This is a print from 1901. When A highland wife is triumphantly presenting to an old jailer an order for the release of her husband, who has been "out in the rebellion of '45." The man, who wears a kilt of the Gordon tartan, has been wounded and carries his right arm in a sling. An interesing fact in connection with this picture is that Lady Millais served as the model for the figure of the woman, and as a portrait it is esteemed one of the best ever executed of her.
