Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

The Gallery, Winch­ester, Eng­land Show­ing from: 13 May – 24 July 2017

This year marks the 200th an­niver­sary of the death of writer Jane Austen, and Hamp­shire Cul­tural Trust is co­or­di­nat­ing a year long se­ries of events to cel­e­brate her cre­ativ­ity and tal­ent.

The cen­tre­piece of the cel­e­bra­tions is the ex­hi­bi­tion The Mys­te­ri­ous Miss Austen, which will in­clude around 80 items, in­clud­ing paint­ings, wa­ter­colours, prints, il­lus­tra­tions, manuscripts, let­ters, cloth­ing and other ob­jects – all gen­er­ously loaned from pri­vate and pub­lic col­lec­tions in the UK and abroad.

The land­mark ex­hi­bi­tion will ex­plore Jane’s re­la­tion­ship to Hamp­shire – the county where she was born and where she is buried.
