Meet The REAL Jane Austen


I know that many of you reading this are fans so prepare to be amazed - as this portrait is said to be a recently discovered portrait of Jane Austen. I'm going to let Mary Jenkins from Wales tell you the rest of this fascinating story.
Read the Jane Austen scholar's story here as reported in The Guardian. She owns this portrait.

I saw the BBC programm. I am very curieus what will happen with the new found portrait of Jane Austen. If this portrait really is Jane I would like it. The woman on the portrait makes a clever and intelligent impression.

I'm not sure if it's the real deal. To bad they didn't have iPhones back in Jane's day because we could know for sure what she really looked like. Thank goodness we still have her scribblings though to read, reread and view via great film productions.
