Tales of Acquisition: Gifts to Birmingham Museums
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Chamberlain Square, Birmingham B3 3DH
As part of Remember a Charity week this special tour explores some of the objects and artworks left to Birmingham Museums by supporters in their Wills or purchased using a legacy. Some of the highlights of Birmingham’s important regional collection were acquired in this way, including the significant John Feeney Bequest, numerous Pre-Raphaelite and Birmingham School pieces and more recently the Stanley Sellers collection of studio pottery.
