Frederic Leighton was an English painter and sculptor. His well-to-do family lived abroad and travelled extensively, and this exposure to European art, tradition, and individuals greatly enriched his perspective and training. His first mature painting, featuring a complex tableau and rich color, made a significant impression at the Royal Academy and was purchased by Queen Victoria. His early work is characterized by classical themes, while his later paintings tend to be aesthetic. He travelled several times to the Middle East, and adopted Nazarene influences; he became president of the Royal Academy in 1878.
