Clytie

Returning Leighton's Clytie

In 2008, Leighton House Museum purchased Clytie; one of the final paintings Leighton was working on at the time of his death in January 1896. This was the most important single acquisition made by the museum since its foundation and was made possible by a grant of £337,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and further grants from the Art Fund and the Friends of Leighton House.

These pages contain extensive information about Clytie and its place in Leighton’s career. The short films, audios, images and texts are part of the HLF- funded programme designed to share the significance of this painting with as wide an audience as possible.
