Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896) Composition study for 'The Syracusan Bride Leading Wild Beasts in Procession to the Temple of Diana' Pencil, on light blue wove paper, with ruled border Circa 1865 Unframed 14 x 42 cm. (5 1/2 x 16 1/2 in) Provenance: private collection, UK. Literature: cf. Ormond, Leone and Richard, ‘Lord Leighton’’, Yale University Press, London, 1975, p.156 -3 The current drawing is a study for the large oil painting ‘The Syracusan Bride Leading Wild Beasts in Procession to the Temple of Diana’’, which Lord Leighton executed in 1865-66 (Private collection). The drawing is an example of one of several important stages in Leighton’’s creative process, beginning with individual figure studies (examples in the Leighton House Museum), moving onto composition studies such as the current lot, then oil sketches (see Dahesh Museum of Art for oil sketch for The Syracusan Bride), before finally executing the finished painting. Backed with thin tissue support. Exposure line, with discolouration from previous mount. Very light spotting and surface dirt.

Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A. (1830-1896) Head of a Girl in a White Dress oil on canvas 15 x 10 in. (38.1 x 25.4 cm.) The artist's studio sale; Christie's, London, 11 July 1896 (first day), lot 101 (160 gns to Agnew's). Joseph Ruston of Monk's Manor, Lincoln (+); Christie's, London, 21 May 1898 (first day), lot 31 (200 gns to Agnew's). Anonymous sale; Christie's, London, 15 June 2011, lot 11, where purchased by the present owner. L. and R. Ormond, Lord Leighton, Yale, 1975, p. 175, no. 446, as 'untraced'. London, Royal Academy, Works by the late Lord Leighton of Stretton, Winter 1897, no. 77. London, Leighton House, Victorian Visions, 2012, no. 11. The picture is generally dated to the 1890s, making it a late work, but hitherto it has not been identified with any particular item in the records. The most likely candidate seems to be the Head of a Girl in a White Dress that appeared in Leighton's studio sale at Christie's in July 1896; and the picture is catalogued here on the assumption that it is this work. However, the connection has not been fully established. The present canvas has virtually the same dimensions as the picture in the studio sale, and the model does indeed wear a white dress. But to put the matter beyond doubt it would be necessary to find an old reproduction or detailed description of the picture sold in 1896. At the studio sale the Head of a Girl in a White Dress was bought by Agnew's. The following year it was lent to Leighton's memorial exhibition at the Royal Academy, and a year later again it re-surfaced at Christie's in the posthumous sale of Joseph Ruston of Monk's Manor, Lincoln. Ruston had a major collection of both old and modern masters, the modern works including four more Leightons and important examples of Rossetti, Burne-Jones, G. F. Watts and others. The Head of a Girl was again bought by Agnew's, but it then disappeared for many years. When the Ormonds published their monograph on Leighton in 1975, it was still listed as 'untraced'. For a picture by Watts also formerly in the Ruston Collection see lot 52 of this sale.
