Online Exhibit Sees Art Through The Eyes Of Jane Austen
Website reconstructs an 1813 exhibition and displays art as the famous author would have experienced it.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. While a slew of celebrations are lined up across the pond, at the University of Texas, Austin, the English department decided to commemorate the event by creating a portal into Jane Austen’s world. The resulting website, ‘What Jane Saw’ is an online recreation of an 1813 exhibit that Austen attended, letting viewers see artwork as Jane may have seen it.
