British painter and sculptor Lord Frederick Leighton was the leading exponent of the sentimental classicism and idealism of the late Victorian era, in opposition to the Pre-Raphaelites. Best known for his use of classical themes, Leighton often painted portraits in Grecian Neoclassical style. His famous original portrait of Biondina remains in Hamburger Kunsthalle.
