A head and shoulders portrait of Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) showing her wearing a bonnet.

It is possible that this is the portrait Charlotte writes about while on her second visit to Brussels in 1843. This would suggest the artist is Mary Dixon.


Martha Brown (a servant in the Bronte household), 1855; William Law; Sotheby's, 2004.
