NewsFromRussia.Com Disputed Elizabethan portrait not Shakespeare, National Gallery says.
I'm not up to date on all the various images of Shakespeare out there. But apparently this "Grafton" one has been deemed a fake. Or, rather, not really a fake in the sense that it was ever passed off as Shakespeare, but rather that people incorrectly assumed it was him. One of the arguments is that for the time of his life that this would have been painted in, Shakespeare was almost certainly too poor to afford that sort of costume.
These are the same people who also found that the "Flower portrait" was a fake from the 19th century.
