A painter and sculptor, Leighton was born in Scarborough and received academic training in various European cities. His first exhibited work, 'Cimabue's Madonna', painted in Rome in 1855, was a triumph at the Royal Academy's exhibition and its success marked Leighton as one of the most promising artists of his generation. He was elected President of the Royal Academy in 1878 and became one of the most successful holders of the office.
