This caricature, along with that of Holman Hunt (1904P436), offers a glimpse of the playful humour of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Millais is here using one of his favourite expressions for the type of painting he disliked; 'Sir Sloshua' was his derogatory term for Sir Joshua Reynolds, one of the founders and first president of the Royal Academy. The paper on which the caricature is drawn appears to be the same writing paper as 1904P436.
