The article talks about a professional painting and provides three reasons to argue that Jane Austen is the subject of the painting. Whereas, the speaker believes that the reasons and evidences provided by the article do not support the conclusion. He provides three opposing arguments for the same.
First, the article posits that in 1882, Jane Austen's family gave the permission to use the portrait as an illutration in edition to her letters because the family recognized it as the portrait of the author. The speaker, however, believes that the portrait could not have been of Jane Austen. He argues that in 1882, Jane Austen had been dead for nearly seventy years, so the family who authorized the use of the portrait had never seen her in real life. They couldn't have known what Jane Austen looked like.
Second, according to the article, the face of the portrait resembles the one in Cassandra's sketch, although amateurish, it conveys details about Austen's face. On the other hand, the speaker points our attention to the fact that Jane Austen had an extended family with many relative who were in their teenage years or their children who were teenagers. Thus, the speaker argues that the teenager in the portait could have easily been any one of Austen's relatives who shared facial details with Austen.
Third, the article puts forward the theory that the painting of a teenage Jane Austen was painted by Ozias Humphrey, who was the type of painter the wealthy Austen family would hire. The speaker contradicts the information by saying that the canvas used in the painting provides infromation that the it was sold by a man named William Legg, who did not sell canvases in London during Austen's teenage years. Austen was 27 when Legg first started selling canvases in London. Thus, the speaker concludes that Humprey was linked to the painting only because of similarities between his style and the painting's style. There is no concerete evidence supporting the same.
In sum, the speaker expresses his disapproval with the conclusion of the article and provides cogent arguments and examples to support the same.
