The Lost Portrait of Charles Dickens goes on display

The Lost Portrait of Charles Dickens has gone on display at the Charles Dickens Museum this week after being lost for over 100 years. The portrait painted by 18th century artist Margaret Gillies was done while Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol. The portrait will be on display for one week as the museum tries to raise funds to secure it permanently.
