Millais’ ‘The Black Brunswicker’ from the Lady Lever Art Gallery collection.

Post a comment to tell us what you think the caption should be for this image. It’s ‘The Black Brunswicker’ by Millais (more on it and a larger image on our main site). The caption we think is funniest/quirkiest/most inventive wins this month’s prize which is a rather nice hardback book, ‘Women Artists In The 20th and 21st Century’.
