Description:
Frederic, Lord Leighton, PRA (British, 1830-1896) Nicandra titled 'Nicandra' on reverse oil on canvas 27 x 22cm (10 5/8 x 8 11/16in). Footnotes Provenance with Thomas Agnew & Sons Ltd., London with J S Maas & Co Ltd., London, 1973, bought by the present owner Private collection, UK Exhibited London, Grosvenor Gallery, 1879, no.104 Literature Ernest Rhys, Frederic Lord Leighton - An Illustrated Record of his Life and Work , 1898, p.127 Mrs Russell Barrington, The Life, Letters and Work of Frederic Leighton , 1906, p.388 Leonee and Richard Ormond, Lord Leighton , 1975, p.165, cat. no.264 This enchanting portrait forms part of a larger series of informal portrait studies undertaken by Leighton in the late 1870s. Nicandra was probably painted in the Autumn of 1878 during Leighton's trip to Lerici to visit his friend the artist Giovanni Costa. The model's tanned skin, her informal yet beautiful appearance, her large brown eyes and tilted head all contribute to the overall effect of simple harmony. Leighton enjoyed the challenges of portraiture freed from the constraints of commissions and demanding patrons. After painting this portrait Leighton heard the news of the death of Sir Francis Grant, President of the Royal Academy. Upon Leighton's return to London in October 1878 he was elected as the next President, he would go on to become the only British artist ever to be elevated to the Peerage.
