The Maid with the Yellow Hair (c.1895). Lord Frederic Leighton (English, Academic, 1830-1896).
Leighton was a painter and sculptor. His works depicted historical, biblical and classical subject matter.
“…I would ask [young artists] to believe that the gathered experience of past ages is a precious heritage and not an irksome load; and that nothing will fortify them better for the future, and free development, than the reverent and loving study of the past.” — Leighton, 1893.
