1) Charlotte Bronte (above). This portrait
was considered by her friends “entirely flattering” and was paid for
by her publisher, possibly with a view to future publication. In Branwell's
portrait she has a straight or retroussé nose and a square face but in this
portrait by George Richmond her nose appears aquiline and her face is
oval. When it was completed Charlotte burst into tears because it looked so much
like her sister Anne.
2) Emily Bronte? The second portrait is
identified as Emily but this has been disputed since it was discovered in
1914; she is almost certainly Anne.
3) Emily Bronte? Wild-looking Emily
is derived from Anne in the 'Pillar Portrait.'
4) Anne Bronte This is Anne in the 'Pillar
Portrait,' the only sister who actually had an aquiline nose.
