Landscapes are rarely described in detail in Jane Austen’s novels, so when a picture of a scene is drawn we know that it has special significance. Jane lived at a time when fashions in landscape design were in the process of change, but with her instinctive conservatism she favoured the ‘traditional’ English styles of Capability Brown and his followers. In most of the novels we see clear links between the character of landscapes and the virtues and vices of the protagonists. This talk considers landscape design in the late Georgian and Regency periods, in the context of those wonderful masterpieces of literature.
