The National Portrait Gallery in London have loaned their rare portrait of the novelist Jane Austen to the Holburne Museum in Bath. Austen, whose likeness here was captured by her sister Cassandra, lived in the city between 1801 and 1806. The loan also happens to coincide with the annual Jane Austen Festival which runs between 10 - 19 September.
