An accomplished woman

In Pride and Prejudice Mr.Darcy adds one critical component to Miss Bingley's list of musts of an accomplished woman -- "improvement of her mind by extensive reading"

In this original watercolor you can see Elizabeth Bennet, who loves a good book, reading one by a sunny window. She is wearing a yellow day dress and a blue ribbon in her hair.
