Portrait of Mrs. Harriet Quentin by Jean François-Marie Huet-Villiers.
After attending an exhibition Jane Austen wrote to her sister that she had found a portrait of Mrs Bingley’s:
"Mrs. Bingley’s is exactly herself-size, shaped face, features, and sweetness; there never was a greater likeness. She is dressed in a white gown,with green ornaments, which convinces me of what I had always supposed, that green was a favourite colour with her. I dare say Mrs. Darcy will be in yellow
….and I am disappointed, for there was nothing like Mrs Darcy at either. I can only imagine that Mr Darcy prizes any Picture of her too much to like it should be exposed to the public eye. I can imagine he would have that sort of feeling, that mixture of love, pride, and delicacy.”
(24 May, 1813)
Yes, many people told me about it and I had a great time watching. I think it´s so original and talented and I must say that I´m extremely proud that Ashley Clements once reblogged one of my posts. Love her.

"That world wasn’t all just teacups and light social chit chat. There was a real world of mud and poverty and destitution. The Bennets had real risk of destitution. To a modern audience, the Bennets’ house is really conveyed that way, such as in the opening scene when Elizabeth goes through all that walking in her washing clothes.”
