This rather restrained portrait of a rather humourless Jane Austen is in fact based on a watercolour by her sister Cassandra, in which the witty and amusing novelist of the English Gentry appears to be furiously grumpy and even plain cross. Our picture, happily, has lightened her mood and brightened her expression, so that her cheeks draw colour from the pretty pink ribbon in her cap.
