Abstract

A teenage Patrick Branwell Brontë painted a pillar over the original representation of himself in this portrait of his sisters, Anne, Emily and Charlotte. Over time, his ghostly presence has reemerged. The painting was rediscovered in the early twentieth century, folded up on top of a cupboard.
