I've tried all angles to find out where the original painting of Little Miss Moffat by John Everett Millais is on display. I tried some art forums but got no reply and found a thousand web sites trying to sell me a poster. I know I am sure to get a result from Mudcat. Thanks guys (and gals).

The answer doesn't seem to be immediately reachable on the Web -- I would try calling the British Museum or some important Birmingham museum and asking about.

Here is a page with a list of the various publican art galleries with Millais pictures in the UK. But this one doesn't appear to be among them, implying that it's either abroad, or in a private collection.

I'd have thought the Tate Gallery would be the people to ask, if this thread doesn't throw up the answer.

Thanks everybody. Murphy's Law brought me to a website which mentioned
Miss Muffet and Lady Lever Art Gallery in close proximity to each other but the rest of the script was in japanese. I will check out that gallery as they already have a number of Millais' works.

I though I had seen every Millais painting but I have never heard of Little Miss Moffat, sure it isn't titled some other way?

Try a Google search "Millais Muffet" and it will yield hundreds of websites selling posters of Litle Miss Muffet by Sir John Everett Millais. I have checked with Lady Lever Gallery and they do not have the original.
On the other hand, about seventy years ago my father purchased a painting identical to the one shown on these "poster" websites which my sister now owns. We always presumed it was simply a copy of Millais' work but the fact that I cannot establish the location of the "original" is beginning to make me hope that this one may be more important that we had considered.

PA:

Southeby's, the respected auctioneers of New York, maintains a staff of experts whose business is to provide appraisals and provide expert information about provenance and history on obscure questions like this one. I woudl recommend you call them. I believe they also have offices in London.

The painting will be auctioned by Christie's London, later this year.
