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.

Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, P.R.A. (1830-1896) The Sluggard signed 'Fred Leighton' and with title to the front of the plinth, inscribed 'FOUNDED BY J.W. SINGERS & SONS./FROME SOMERSET' (on the plinth) and further inscribed 'PUBLISHED BY ARTHUR LESLIE COLLIE/39 B OLD BOND STREET LONDON/MAY 1 s t 1890.' (on the plinth) bronze with a dark green/brown patina 20 3/8 in. (51.7 cm.) high with The Fine Art Society, London, 1959. Probably inspired by his model Angelo Colorossi, seen stretching after a sitting, The Sluggard, or An Athlete Awakening from Sleep, the work's original title, was almost certainly conceived as a pendant to An Athlete Strangling a Python (1877). The full scale work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1886 and was awarded a medal of honour when it was shown at the Paris Exposition Universelle three years later. Acquired from Leighton's studio sale in 1896 by Henry Tate, the full size bronze is now in the Tate Gallery. Benedict Read suggests the subject can be seen 'as a symbol of the art of sculpture, liberated by Leighton, flexing itself for renewed activity after a long time in the shackles of convention.'
