PORTRAIT OF A LADY? LECTURE SERIES
From the reserved courtships of Jane Austen’s novels to the romping exploits of Moll Flanders, our vision of romantic relationships in the Georgian era tend to be either highly idealised or thoroughly debauched. But what was the reality? How might a Georgian libertine chat up a ‘jesting barmaid’? How were ladies advised to flirt, and make themselves beautiful? Using contemporary prints, etiquette guides and suggested chat up lines, Emily Brand takes a look at seduction in the Georgian era.
