A young noble woman knights a gallant hero in “The Accolade,” one of Edmund Blair Leighton’s idealized historical scenes. Leighton (1853 – 1922), a pre-Raphaelite who studied and later exhibited at the Royal Academy Schools, was renowned for his meticulously painted, romanticized regency and medieval subjects. Painted with beautiful flow and ripple depicting both motion and rest, long, elaborate dresses were often his works’ focal point.
British pre-Raphaelite artist Edmund Blair Leighton (1853 – 1922) crafted meticulously detailed, romantic medieval and regency scenes. A student of the Royal Academy who also exhibited there for over 40 years, Leighton left a job in a tea merchant’s office to pursue painting. Painting courtships and weddings, his work often focuses on fabric that beautifully flows and ripples, conveying both motion and rest. Leighton’s idealized historical scenes are popular poster reproductions.

    Comments:

    As a collector of medieval home decor, I went looking for a large tapestry for my loungeroom wall. I have always loved 'The Accolade' picture, and I found a cheap one from China.. well what a disappointment that was.. it's true you get what you paid for. I sent that tapestry back, and ordered from AllPosters. The difference was amazing and I'm so glad I sought out a better quality tapestry. It looks amazing on my wall.. thank you AllPosters for using a supplier of fine tapestries.

      I'm very glad I purchased this tapestry. This work has always been one of my favorites, and it looks awesome on the wall. The fabric is thick and the scene beautiful. The width is three inches smaller than what they specify, but not a big deal at all. Don't hesitate to buy if you've been contemplating it!

        I had been wanting this print or wall hanging for about 2 years. Finally bought it and I Am OH SO GLAD! It's gorgeous! I LOVE IT! For me it is just right! My ex commented after feeling it that it didn't look expensive. I said I bought it for beauty not price. I am elated that it is SO BEAUTIFUL and I paid what I DID!
