Leighton House acquires Clytie - Lord Leighton's Last Painting

Staff at Leighton House Museum are celebrating after purchasing the last painting by one of Britain’s greatest 19th Century artists and returning it to the place it was created.

Thanks to an Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £337,500, Lord Frederic Leighton’s work Clytie will now stay, not only in Britain, but at Leighton House, where the Victorian painter had his studio.
