Edmund Blair Leighton was an English painter of historical genre scenes, specializing in Regency and medieval subjects.
He was a fastidious craftsman, producing highly-finished, decorative pictures, displaying romanticized scenes with a popular appeal. It would appear that he left no diaries, and though he exhibited at the Royal Academy for over forty years, he was never an Academician or an Associate.
