Subfield: Drawing and Painting

Explanation: Filippo Brunelleschi was the architect of the dome of Florence Cathedral, which can be seen through the window in Leighton's painting. This was one of the last paintings Leighton produced as a student in Frankfurt, and he gave it to his tutor Eduard von Steinle as a parting gift. Several members of Leighton's family appear in the work including his father, as the artist Donatello - who stands behind Brunelleschi in the centre of the canvas.
