7p, - 8.30pm
Leighton House and Sambourne House Museum
Leighton, knighted, feted, and honoured as the long-serving president of the Royal Academy, the ultimate “gentleman artist” and Insider. Whistler, rebellious, non-conforming, iconoclastic, and the anthesis of the Royal Academy, a publicity hound and self-proclaimed Outsider. A comparison of their contrasting lives undermines several myths as well as illustrating the fascinating and multi-dimensional artistic world of nineteenth-century London.
