Leighton, Frederick, Sir, P.R.A., was born (1830) at Scarborough. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1855 Cimabue's Madonna carried in Procession at Florence, and his progress since then has been steady, while he has remained true to his old ideals. His Paolo and Francesco, and The Sea giving up her Dead are well known. Sir Frederick is also a sculptor of merit. He became A.R.A. 1864, P.R.A. and knight 1878, baronet 1886.
