Portrait of a lady

From The BBC Learning English: "Even though she lived more than 200 years ago, the famous English novelist Jane Austen has been in news a lot recently. The only known portrait of Jane Austen is to be sold by auction in New York this week, and is expected to fetch between 200,000 and 400,000 pounds. The oil painting, which experts believe was commissioned by the novelist's great-uncle in 1790, has been handed down from generation to generation and currently belongs to one of Jane Austen's descendants...." Who has the picture of this oil painting? please upload it, I'm so curious about what it looks like.
