Leighton House #1

LEIGHTON HOUSE, 12 Holland Park Road, London. Home of the artist Lord Frederic Leighton (1830 - 1896). Interior view. The studio of Lord Frederic Leighton displaying recently completed works including 'Flaming June' and The Maid with the Golden Hair'. Leighton was loosely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Photographed by Bedford Lemere in 1895.

Thank you for the reminder.

Leighton House is always a show stopper, particularly because of the external and especially internal architecture. Alas we tend to miss the stunning paintings.

I was just so pleased to find these posed but fascinating photographs. So many important artists lived in the area too or visited regularly.
