Edmund Blair Leighton was a British painter who was born on 21 September 1852 in London, England. He was the son of the artist Charles Blair Leighton and was educated at the Royal Academy Schools in London. Leighton was known for his romantic depictions of medieval and Renaissance life, often featuring beautiful women in elegant gowns and knights in armour.

Leighton's paintings were highly detailed, with careful attention to lighting and colour. He often used warm, rich colours and soft lighting to create a dreamy, romantic atmosphere. Some of his most famous works include 'The Accolade', 'The Shadow' and 'God Speed'.

Leighton was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and exhibited at the Royal Academy in London. He died in London on 1 September 1922 at the age of 68. Today his paintings are highly sought after by collectors and art lovers around the world.
