In this video I talk about the painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais. I give you my analysis of this wonderful painting and tell you about the painter, the model and the story. Ophelia is a character from Hamlet, but this particular scene is never shown on stage. You can see the real thing in the Tate Gallery in London.
