Two hundred years ago, there lived a magnetic and manipulative aristocrat whose complex relationships and strong passions will strike a chord with any modern woman. Georgina, Duchess of Bedford, had a long and happy marriage with one of the richest men in England. Yet she also kept a handsome lover over 20 years her junior--the famous artist Edwin Landseer--who adored her till the day he died. Georgina's controversial life caused scandal even in that decadent era. She was at the center of Regency society and mixed with the leading politicians, artists, and nobles of the time. Mistress of the Arts explores the life of this intriguing woman and the colorful world she inhabited.
