Cranford illustrators: which bits did they illustrate?

As part of our A Love Affair with Cranford exhibition, Anthony Burton returns with a new talk exploring Cranford’s many illustrators. Surveying thirteen varied artists, he asks why they were attracted to illustrate certain aspects of Elizabeth Gaskell’s work. The cow in flannel pyjamas? Few artists tried this but many depicted Miss Matty burning old letters.  Most liked to draw people but few showed Cranford as a place. Do the illustrations offer a commentary or just occasional glimpses?
