I couldn’t resist a minute to blog about this one: An exquisite miniature of Tom Lefroy has emerged in England. He is the man nobody knows under his real name, but everyone knows under his immortal literary alter ego: Fitzwilliam Darcy. Thus, while it’s not 100% certain that he served as Jane Austen’s model for that character, it’s pretty darn certain. As you can see from this picture, painted in 1798, he was a very good looking young man by any standards. Couple those good looks with the fact that Jane found him charming, and you’ve got literary history in the making.
