The Dickens Lost Portrait

This portrait of Charles Dickens was painted by the Scottish artist Margaret Gillies in 1843. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in 1844. Since then it has been considered lost, the artist herself had no idea what had happened to it and its fate became a mystery. Until now – it was discovered in a terrible state (now restored as you can see) in a box of ‘household junk’ in South Africa. Now the Dickens Museum is trying to raise funds to buy it for its collection. Can you help? If so, please follow this link:
