The Unseen Portrait of Jane Austen

Inquiring Reader, Frequent contributor Raquel Sallaberry sent a YouTube video of Jane Austen: The Unseen Portrait. Sadly, the link was taken off the site. The clip below shows a fascinating discussion of whether the image of the woman identified as Jane Austin is really of her. I wrote a brief post about this portrait before the holidays. The comments that sit below it are more interesting than my own thoughts.

What do you think? Could this be a portrait of Jane Austen or not?

I think that if that were Jane it would not change how I think about her. But when I read Jane and picture her in my mind and think of her ideas and thoughts that she has written I see a softer Jane, not so manly Jane. A Jane that is a strong women in a femnine body. Soft and not so cold looking. Maybe thats me but I love picturing her that way.
