TitlePhotographs of private collections
DescriptionA large set of photographs of paintings in private collections, largely in the UK, were stored by Millar in bundles rather than a systematic filing system. They have been arranged by collection in alphabetical order.

The majority of the photographs appear to have been sent to Millar by acquaintances at the auction houses Christie's and Sotheby's; some were sent to obtain his opinion on attributions and sitters, or else they were sent simply for information purposes.

It is unclear whether any of the photographs were taken by Millar himself, but they are all modern colour prints and seem to date from the 1990s-2000s.

The photographs are annotated with the name of the owner, house or location on the back. Most are not dated, unless stated. Occcasionally the name of the attributed artist and/or identity of the sitter is written on the back.

Images of paintings in private collections were also filed by Millar throughout the research files series (ONM/2 and ONM/3).
