Knowing what a fan of Brian Sewell we are here on AHN, a reader writes:

I thought you might like to see the portrait of him [by John Gregory] in the collection of Bangor University - what connection he has with the college is a mystery to me - and as far as I know it has never been seen on its walls since it was painted in 2004 - last time I saw it it was ignominiously shoved into a broom cupboard off the Senior Reading Common Room in its cardboard packaging. Nor do I know how or why it was painted, from life or not.  At least it's now safely aboard the good ship Your Paintings.

Can anyone from Bangor assure us that Brian is no longer in broom cupboard?
