Resumen

Frederic Leighton es principalmente reconocido como el presidente de la Royal Academy en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, exhibiendo pinturas figurativas de gran escala con un alto grado de acabado. La beca, sin embargo, ha pasado por alto sus pinturas al aire libre creadas durante sus frecuentes viajes a Italia, España, Egipto y Grecia, por nombrar algunos. Como los bocetos al óleo de Leighton comprenden más de 200 lienzos y tablas, su importancia para su obra es primordial y debe ser claramente articulada. Usando el ejemplo de An Outcrop in the Campagna, este artículo explora cómo los tres aspectos - naturaleza, ciencia y mito - se fusionaron en la visión del paisaje de Leighton. Se examinan la composición y la técnica de la pintura, así como la influencia del círculo de Leighton, ejemplificado por Giovanni Costa y la Escuela de Arte Etrusco. Finalmente, la física solar y la termodinámica victorianas se presentan como un contexto importante para la dimensión simbólica de los paisajes de Leighton.
