Charlotte, Emily and Anne were the authors of some of our best loved novels from the Victorian era, including Jane Eyre; Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Halland yet during their own lifetime they were criticised for their strong, independant minded female heroines. The portrait we have today, long thought lost, is one of the only surviving images of all three sisters and the story of its discovery atop a cupboard is almost as intriguing as the story of the sisters themselves. Join us to learn about them both. Talk led by Nathalie Nadeau.
