A portrait of Thomas Carlyle by Millais, damaged by the suffragette Annie Hunt . The Morning Chronicle reported the event the following day 'another picture outrage was committed at the National Portrait Gallery at about half past 11 yesterday morning by a Suffragist. A young woman of refined appearance and very respectably dressed attacked Millais's unfinished portrait of Carlyle with a butcher's cleaver which she carried concealed beneath her blouse, and before she could be restrained made three large cuts on the face and head of the portrait'
