A famous Jane Austen portrait will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s. The Guardian has posted up a photo of the portrait.

According to The Telegraph, this portrait is ”widely regarded as the most famous image of the author.” The auction will take place on December 10th.

Experts estimate that James Andrews’ watercolor painting will be able to draw as much as £150,000 to £200,000 in bids.  In the future, United Kingdom citizens will carry copies of this portrait in their wallets. Starting in 2017, the £10 note will feature Austen’s face.
