Man claims Bronte portrait find (UK)

An art collector claims he has uncovered a rare portrait of the Bronte sisters painted by one of Britain's most famous Victorian artists.

James Gorin von Grozny, from Devon, paid £150 for the work which he believes was painted by Sir Edwin Landseer in 1838.

But art experts say Landseer would have had no call to paint the sisters who were not famous at that date.

The only known portrait of the sisters was painted by their brother, Branwell.
