A Victorian Master: Drawings by Frederic, Lord Leighton
Within this catalogue the 55 drawings in the exhibition are grouped into six sections. An overall chronological survey, representing highlights from the collection, is punctuated by three `focus' years - 1859, 1877 and 1895 - when Leighton's drawing production is set into contrasting moments from his career. Each of the six sections is preceded by a short introduction to establish the details of Leighton's biography, and to outline how his use of drawing and technique evolved. The catalogue also includes two new essays on Leighton and his drawings and a handlist of the Leighton Drawings Collection at Leighton House Museum.
