A thorough knowledge of drawing

AustenBlog is giving their readers a heads-up about another Jane Austen-related contest: there's going to be an art competition focused on Stoneleigh Abbey, an English estate that belonged to Austen's relatives for four hundred years and *may* have inspired elements of Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey. Aspiring artists have been asked to draw or paint either the house's west wing or its 14th century gatehouse, with the winners' work ending up on a line of postcards to be sold at the house. The contest is free, it closes September 29th, and the winners will be announced on October 10th.
