Statue of John Everett Millais (1829-1896) by Thomas Brock (1847-1922) at the back of Tate Britain.

John Everett Millais, a Pre-Raphaelite painter, was elected President of the Royal Academy, but died shortly after in 1896. The Prince of Wales (later to be King Edward VII) chaired a memorial committee and commissioned the statue, which was installed in 1905 at the front of the gallery on its east side. Sir Norman Reid, Tate director, tried in the early 1960s to have it replaced and considered it "positively harmful", but was frustrated in this by the Ministry of Works, which owned the statue. English Heritage succeeded the Ministry in ownership, which it transferred to the Tate in 1996. In 2000, when Sir Nicholas Serota was the Tate director, the statue was moved to the rear of the building next to the bicycle racks. Info from Tate website (apart from the bicycle racks bit).
