New Shakespeare Portrait
I've been reading articles about the "newly discovered" Shakespeare portrait (which hung quietly in an Irish house for 400 years). (See one such article here)
It does sound more plausible that the totally unbelievable Jane Austen "Chandos portrait" that went to auction not long ago (and failed to say, because everyone could see how thin that story was!). Plus Shakespeare was kind of a cutie, if this portrait is to be believed, with great fashion sense! What do you think?
