It was once believed that Branwell Brontë made a trip to London to apply to attend the Royal Academy Schools.

Instead he found himself trying to make a living out of painting portraits of the more prosperous residents of Haworth and Bradford.

Jane Sellars, co-author of The Art of the Brontës and former Director of the Brontë Parsonage Museum, looks at Branwell's provincial art career in Yorkshire and compares it with life in the artistic circles of London to which he aspired.
