Frederic Leighton.Head of an Italian Model

第一代斯特雷頓男爵弗雷德里克·雷頓(Frederic Leighton, 1st Baron of Stretton, 3 December 1830 – 25 January 1896)出生於斯卡布羅(Scarborough)的英國學院派(Academism)畫家和雕塑家,其作品題材包括歷史、聖經和古典等主題。雷頓注重美感,尤其是男性的美感(這在某種程度上也使他的性向成為藝評界關注的重點),喜歡運用鮮明的色彩描繪人物,作品有著拉斐爾前派(Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood)夢幻般的生動性和象徵主義(Symbolism)的異國情調、神話色彩。雷頓在去世前一天獲得男爵的封號,使他成為歷史上最短命的貴族。

這幅作品就懸掛在雷頓故居博物館的絲綢室裡(The Silk Room, Leighton House Museum. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea)。
