Leader of Victorian classical painting, Frederick Leighton (1830 – 1896) created historical and mythological scenes influenced by the Nazarenes and the Italian Renaissance. Talented and hard-working, Leighton created art in many mediums, fluently spoke five languages, and believed that sincerity bred success. Although he did not study at the Royal Academy, he was its president for almost 20 years. His focus shifted from historical to mythological subjects at the same time the public became interested in Greek culture, cementing his popularity.
