You can search the database of drawings by Frederic, Lord Leighton in public collections worldwide, including the catalogue of the Leighton House Drawings Collection.
Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896) is acknowledged as one of the great Victorian draughtsmen. The Leighton Drawings Project aimed to catalogue, conserve, photograph and exhibit the collection of almost 700 drawings by Leighton at Leighton House Museum. It was carried out between 2005 and 2007 with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. The fully illustrated catalogue can be accessed through this website, along with a database of all Leighton drawings in other public collections worldwide, created with the support of the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. A printed catalogue, which accompanies the exhibition, is available from the Museum. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to order a copy.
