Save Event: The Mysterious Miss Austen

People who have saved this event:


Explore with us the intriguing question – who is Jane Austen? This landmark exhibition will look at the author’s work, life and relationship to Hampshire, the county that provided inspiration for her novels.


The centrepiece will be five portraits of Jane together under one roof for the very first time, including one which has not been seen in public for more than forty years. Of the handful of items that survive which actually belonged to Jane, on show will be her silk pelisse coat and purse. Other treasures include the manuscript of an alternative ending to Persuasion in her own hand, while Grayson Perry’ s Jane Austen in E17 ceramic is evidence of her lasting legacy and influence on the arts.
