At long last

According to The Guardian, a long-overlooked note could solve the mystery of the "Rice Portrait", which descendants of Jane Austen have long argued was a portrait of the author as a young girl. Art experts have disagreed, however, but an unsigned note by one of Austen's great-nieces adds weight to the family's story. And that's a good thing, because otherwise the best-known image of Austen is this deeply unfortunate portrait drawn by her sister Cassandra.
