Event description

Description

If Jane Austen had gone to the National Portrait Gallery, whose portraits would she have visited? Josephine Ross, author of numerous books on Austen, including Jane Austen and her World (2017), leads a tour of the collection, telling the story of Austen’s life through the portraits of the great men and women who inspired and influenced her, from Samuel Johnson and Walter Scott to Sarah Siddons and Mary Wollstonecraft. The only known portrait of Austen, drawn from life by her elder sister Cassandra, can also be viewed.
