Flaming June: A Masterpiece Comes Home is a landmark exhibition for Leighton House Museum, returning Leighton’s most famous and celebrated work to the artist’s house from the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico. Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830- 1896), was one of the pre-eminent artists of his day. President of the Royal Academy from 1878 to 1896, he achieved great fame and influence as a figurehead for art in late Victorian society; a period when art enjoyed unprecedented public interest and appreciation. Daniel Robbins, Senior Curator at Leighton House Museum, will lead a tour of the exhibition.
