This entertaining presentation explores the world of beloved English author, Jane Austen, by looking at the arts of her time. We’ll discuss the established social roles of English ladies and gentlemen, and how the industrial revolution was bringing “new money” into society. We’ll look at trends in fashion, hairstyles, country estates, garden design, and proper tea service. Featuring paintings by Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough and J. M. W. Turner, among others.
