Jane Austen Reading Group Ventura

In a letter dated May 24, 1813, Jane Austen wrote to her sister Cassandra that she had gone to see Sir Joshua Reynolds’ exhibit in London.

The University of Texas at Austen has recreated the exhibit. Take a fun, virtual tour of the paintings, room by room,  and See What Jane Saw.

Read the “About What Jane Saw” section for interesting insight to possible impact of the exhibit on her writing.
