The reading and the speaker discuss whether a portrait is Jane Austen who was a famous writer from different perspectives. The author of the reading believes that it belongs to Jane Austen and he gives three reasons to support his idea. However, the speaker casts doubt on the claims made in the article. He says that none of those notions are convincing.
First of all, the author of the reading points out that in 1882 her family gave a permission to use the portrait as the edition of her letters. This point is challenged by the speaker. He restates the fact that Austen’s family asserted her painting after she died 70 years, therefore, they might not see her by themselves. As a result, they may not know exactly whether its subject is hers or not.
Secondly, the author of the reading contends that the face of the portrait looks like Austen's face. The speaker rebuts this idea by saying that Austen's family is very large. There are many faces of teenagers in her relative are identical her face. Moreover, experts have shown that there are two of her relatives resemble her.
Finally, the author of the reading states that the style of that painting linked to the style of Ozias Humphrey, who Austen’s family hired and the painting was actually depicted when Austen was a teenager. The lecture on the other hand, opposes this point by saying that the stamp indicated behind the portrait’s canvas has a name of a seller called Williams, who didn’t sell canvas in London during Humphrey’s painting activity, rather than he sold his paintings when Austen was twenty –seven years old.
