Rice Portrait Update

If you've visited my blog before you will know that I've written at length about this delightful portrait of Jane Austen by Ozias Humphry.
There's a lovely article in JASNA news this month by Anne Rice, the owner of the portrait, and her brother, Robin Roberts, which is introduced by the editor, Sheryl Craig. Click on the picture for a larger image.
There are some exciting developments happening as I write - all I can say at the moment is to keep watching the website  The Rice Portrait of Jane Austen for more information!

Very exciting Jane! Strange that there is such resistance to accepting this lovely image as Jane Austen. Thanks for the web link. I hope to stay on top of this as it develops.

Hello Alexa,
Thank you for stopping by - I shall keep you posted!

Nancy Kelley said...

I agree with Alexa--the resistance to this picture being of Jane makes no sense to me. I'm looking forward to more news on the subject, Jane.

Jane Odiwe said...

Hi Nancy!

Absolutely! I think, however, that judging from the emails the Rice family are receiving, opinion is changing.

I enjoyed the website and I thought the portrait lovely. I didn't get to read thru everything after the home page but it's certainly worth reading when I can. thanks for sharing.

I'm sure you'll find it very interesting, Suzan!
