Edmund Blair Leighton

After Service. Painted in 1921.
I wanted something different, so I decided to post some of Leighton's work.

OK, I'll bite.

Why the fascination with this Leighton?

Jeffrey Smith said...

No fascination. I just found them and thought they're good enough to deserve posting.

Thanks for renewing my acquaintance with Leighton. He is one of my favorites.

Leighton was at the peak of a particular genre of Victorian - what I would call hyper-realist - painting. I'm not sure I'd want one on the living room wall, but they are sheer delight to look at.
