Lord Leighton, Wedded,
in original Tunbridge style frame.
A young couple embrace after their marriage at the Greek amphitheatre of Taormina in Sicily. The bride is apparently based on studies Leighton made in Damascus of a Greek girl whose beauty captivated him.
The picture was one of the artist’s most popular works and the poet Robert Browning on inspecting it is said to have remarked: ‘I find a poetry in that man’s work that I can find in no other’.
