Frederic, Lord Leighton was the most prominent painter of Victorian England's artistic renaissance. His works combine the grand academic style with a sensuous delight in the human form and a feeling for colour and light. Leighton created the most elaborate figurative paintings of mythological, historical and literary subjects, as well as landscapes influenced by his European upbringing and training. As a powerful president of the Royal Academy, his passionate interest in painting revitalized British art in the nineteenth century and marks his out as a genius of his age. This monograph provides a commentary on Leighton's career and a gallery of the artist's finest works. [via]
