Exhibition: Satire and Scandal

Jane Austen’s House

Date: 3rd Jan 2024 - 17th Apr 2024
Time: Opening Hours
Price: Range from Free with House entry

This colourful display dives into the brutal and hilarious world of Georgian cartoons that Jane Austen and her contemporaries would have known well. From Royalty, politics and world events to food, fashion and culture, nothing was safe from the caricaturists of the day.

From their print shops in Piccadilly, the Georgian caricaturists turned satire into an art form, giving a platform to grievances against the ruling classes, taking on the British establishment and forever changing the way we view power.

This display has been guest curated by acclaimed historian Alice Loxton, inspired by her best-selling book UPROAR!: Satire, Scandal and Printmakers in Georgian London.

This display will run from 18 October 2023 – 17 April 2024 and is free with House entry!
