We have been busy ‘behind the scenes’ photographing and cataloguing more of the beautiful objects and artworks which fill Leighton House.
Here is a sneak peek at a few of our favourite details so far...
🧜♂️ Ivory table inlaid with design of Neptune, horses and boats. The inlaid panel at the centre is a copy, with some differences, after Pellegrino Tibaldi's (1527-1596) fresco in the Palazzo Poggi in Bologna. The table sits in Leighton's drawing room.
🌷 Chaise Longue in Morris & Co 'Tulip' blue fabric (designed in 1875) which can be found in the Silk Room.
👩👦 Plaster copy of Michelangelo's 'The Virgin and Child with the Infant St John (The Taddei Tondo)' which hangs on the wall of Leighton's studio.
