This portraitback to top

Leighton trained in Frankfurt and Florence before moving to Paris from where he sent his monumental painting Cimabue's Madonna is Carried in Procession through the Streets of Florence, to the Royal Academy exhibition of 1855. One of the most important artists of the later Victorian period, he was elected President of the Royal Academy in 1878, and became one of the most revered holders of the office. In this photograph by David Wilkie Wynfield, Leighton is wearing Renaissance costume similar to that seen on the male model in his 1864 painting Golden Hours.
