The painting’s not a Gainsborough

Kenwood’s painting of Dido Elizabeth Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray

• AS a former curator at Kenwood, I can say with confidence the amazing portrait of Dido Elizabeth Belle is not by Thomas Gainsborough, despite the confident assertion of Jeff Sawtell in his article on Kenwood (Treasures mapped, August 1).
