Manuscripts, portraits and even a pair of cloth boots belonging to English author Charlotte Bronte went on display in London on Monday to celebrate the 200th anniversary of her birth. The small exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, which runs until August 14, offers glimpses into the life of the novelist who lived between 1816 and 1855 and is best known for "Jane Eyre". It revolves around a famous portrait by her brother Branwell Bronte with Charlotte, her sisters Emily and Anne, and his own ghostly shadow in the middle.
