Event Details


‘Show me the money: The Image of Finance at Chawton House Library’

‘Show me the Money: The Image of Finance at Chawton House Library’ forms part of a national touring exhibition that tells the visual history of finance from the 1700s to the contemporary. Alongside familiar images by Hogarth and Gillray from the eighteenth century, and new research on the Austen family itself, the exhibition explores the work of a contemporary generation of women artists who are interested in what money itself is: the tension between its essential place in our social and collective lives and its fragile and ephemeral physical nature.

For exhibition information, see


‘Meet the Curator’ Wednesday 1st October, 6:30 pm.

6:30 pm Drinks Reception, 7:00 pm Talk

Tickets: £7.50


The Exhibition will be at Chawton House Library from 19th September to 22nd November and will also accessible through Guided Tours every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, 2 pm.
