A favourite piece from this museum is The Archangel Lucifer from Epstein, a Bronze sculpture whose face is modelled after a (not-pretty) female and the body is that of a (not-pretty) male. It also hosts a good collection of works from the pre-Raphaelites.
The ass of the devil in the round gallery.
How the Llyn Idwal looked to a local artist (Samuel Lines).
Detail from another favourite of the museum: The Finding of the Saviour in the Temple, by the pre-Raphaelite William Hunt.
A room of the museum, showing The Start of Bethlehem, the largest watercolour of the 19th century.
Beside (BM&AG), Birmingham also hosts the largest independent museums trust in the United Kingdom, to which we became members on 31 August (2019) when visiting Aston. This includes the main museum (which entry is free anyway) as well as seven (plus one, to pre-book) attractions:
This is the Science Museum of Birmingham. It hosts the Smethwick Engine, the oldest working steam engine in the world, installed in 1779 on the Birmingham-Wolverhampton canal to pump water back up a series of canal locks at Smethwick.
A highlight of Birmingham, in Aston, of historical and architectural significance, also with nice gardens and a great park.
In 2008, it the third best free tourist attraction in Europe by TripAdvisor, behind the Pantheon in Rome and the National Gallery in London (it is not free anymore).
Old functioning watermill, famous for its association with Tolkien.
Georgian home of the Birmingham industrialist, Matthew Boulton, who was close with James Watt.
Ruins of a fortified manor house built over 750 years ago.
Birmingham is a high place for top gastronomy, which we still have to explore.
