A.C. Leighton, The Honeymoon, 1931, oil on canvas
A.C., ever resilient and intrigued by the dramatic mountain weather systems, found inspiration in the dreary landscape and his new wife. Barbara posed for him in the downpour, holding a saddle and facing the mountains. From that sketch he created this painting, The Honeymoon.
