    The University of Texas at Austin’s Department of English has created an incredible historical reconstruction of the first-ever retrospective of the work of Sir Joshua Reynolds, held at the British Institution in 1813. See what Jane Austen and others who attended this major social event would have seen in this e-gallery: http://www.whatjanesaw.org/index.php

  • The so-called Diane de Versailles, now located at the Louvre.

    Only 58 cm tall, she is supposed to be a 1st or 2nd century Roman marble copy of a lost Greek bronze original, which is attributed to Leochares, c. 325 BC.
