Sunrise Over Sea, 13 November 1839 Signed and dated 'Anne Brontë', 'November Drawn while Anne was governess to the Ingham children at Blake Hall, Mirfield (this was near to Roe Head School). Anne was nineteen at the time.
This water-colour was originally attributed to Charlotte, but recent evidence indicates it was almost certainly by Anne. It had once belonged to a family called 'Anderson' in Greater Ouseburn - apparently given to them by the Robinson children to whom Anne was governess. Edward Chitham suggests it may be Anne's portrait of Mary Robinson - one of her charges. Others have suggested that it may be an attempt at a self portrait.
