The portrait that caused a storm in England last August and was claimed to be ‘cursed’ is back on the world agenda… The last owner of the painting told the British media that the portrait has been haunted by bad luck since the day he received it.

The chilling portrait of a little girl, which was taken and returned several times from a charity in the UK, went viral on the internet last August on the grounds that it was ‘cursed’ and remained on the agenda for a long time.

IT CAUSED A STORM ON THE INTERNET

Steve Elledge, director of the HARC charity shop that first put the portrait up for sale, told Insider that they initially set a price of £20 for the painting, acknowledging that the little girl’s appearance was a little odd. Less than 24 hours after the first customer bought the portrait, they returned it and didn’t even get a refund.

The portrait was put back on display and sold. However, the woman who bought it returned to the store 3 days later, saying that ‘everything in her life had gone wrong’ and returned the painting. Elledge returned the twice-returned portrait for the third time and put it on display with a note saying that it was ‘probably cursed’. It was just a joke, but the allegedly cursed portrait took the internet by storm.

THE LAST OWNER HAS APPEARED: MISFORTUNE HAS HAUNTED ME

Zoe Elliott-Brown, who bought the painting for the third time, claimed she was being stalked by a black figure and put the portrait up for sale online. James Kislingbury, who runs a tourist attraction called ‘The London Bridge Experience’, bought the creepy painting for £1,680 to hang in the reception area of his business on Halloween.

The 44-year-old owner came forward months later to tell the British media that he had been plagued by bad luck ever since he bought the painting.

STAFF CLAIMED THEY WERE BEING FOLLOWED, ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES EXPLODED

Claiming that the day he brought the portrait to his business, the internet went down and televisions randomly turned on and off, the man said, “I kept the portrait wrapped up in the back for a few days. No one knew I had bought it, but staff began to report seeing shadowy figures following them. One of my employees claimed she kept hearing footsteps behind her.”

Explaining that he took the portrait to the family home in Berkshire at the end of October, Kislingbury said, “That same day my father-in-law was hospitalized and our dishwasher and toaster exploded. We had never had such problems before.”

“ALL KINDS OF STRANGE THINGS HAPPENED”

At first he thought it was a chain of bad coincidences, but his business was flooded twice in November and December. He hurt his collarbone on vacation with his family.

Despite all this, Kislingbury said that he does not plan to get rid of the painting, telling the British media, “All kinds of strange things have happened. It scares me a little bit, but I’m used to it now. I plan to keep the painting.”
