Sir John Everett Millais, Afternoon Tea (The Gossips), 1889. Collection of the Winnipeg Art Gallery; Gift of the Everett Family from the Everett Collection, in memory of Patricia Everett. 2009-334

Afternoon Tea (the Gossips) (1889), a large oil by the English Pre-Raphaelite artist John Everett Millais (1829–1896), is donated to the WAG. 

The painting is a gift by former Senator the Honourable. Douglas D. Everett, and his wife Patricia Everett (1927-2010). The Everett’s opted to make the donation after reading a report in the Winnipeg Free Press earlier in the year detailing the WAG’s establishment of a permanent exhibition of works from the collection.
