(AUSTEN, Jane.) BROCK, C. E.
“Is not this nice?”
Pride & Prejudice. Chapter XXXIX. p. 36.
The original signed illustration for the “Pride and Prejudice” published in 1907 as part of the “Series of English Idylls” by J. M. Dent & Co. The illustrations Brock created are a full and original revision of his previous illustrations for the “Pride and Prejudice” published by Macmillan in 1895. The costume and interior decor depicted in these illustrations is reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry used to collect antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio. C. E. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in the year following the publication of these illustrations. The scene depicted shows Kitty and Lydia welcoming their sisters to a lunch they have prepared.
