Millais statue Millais statue

Statue: Millais statue

Erection date: 1904

Inscription

{Front of the plinth:}
John Everett Millais

{On the base of the statue:}
T. Brock. RA Sc. 1904

Millais helped found the Tate Gallery in the building behind.  

Peter Duby points out that this statue is unusual in that it incorporates a recognisable piece of furniture, the small table with a drawer.  We certainly can't, off-hand, name another statue so furnished (pun intended, sorry).
