The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) have announced their acquisition of Alexander Munro's marble Portrait of John Everett Millais. The museum announced the acquisition as part of their reopening last week, although the relief was purchased back in 2020 during the lockdowns. The acquisition was made through the sculpture dealer Stuart Lochhead and his catalogue note for the work can be found here.
