On 24 May 1813, Jane Austen visited an art exhibit at the British Institution in Pall Mall, London. The popular show was the first-ever retrospective of the works of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), England’s celebrated portrait painter.

This is the artwork that appeared on the catalog that introduced the art exhibit: an 1808 sketch by Thomas Rowlandson, of the interior of the British Institution.
