Oh! Mr Darcy!


In 1802, Jane Austen first accepted and then immediately refused an unexpected offer of marriage that may have assured her both social and financial security.

Somewhat humiliated by the ensuing confusion, she sought refuge in the companiable to and fro of visitors to Bath’s Sydney Pleasure Gardens.

“Oh! Mr Darcy!” depicts a daring leap by her small friend into the Kennet and Avon Canal as it cuts through the gardens from one of two romantically Chinese styled bridges.
