Leighton House

Leighton House in London will be transformed by hanging 50 exceptional paintings from the largest Victorian private art collection outside Great Britain, many shown for the first time. A Victorian Obsession: The Pérez Simón Collection opens on 14 November and runs until 29 March 2015. These paintings return to the house in which they were painted, There are also works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, John Everett Millais, John William Waterhouse and Lawrence Alma-Tadema. So this is Victorian art par excellence. Shown is a detail from Frederic Lord Leighton's Crenaia the nymph of the Dargle (c.1880). Entry costs £10 for adults, £6 for silver surfers (CLICK).
