Sir Frederick Leighton, who later became Lord Leighton, had just been elected President of the Royal Academy when he gave me the impression of his hand which appears on Plate XI. His left and right hands were exactly alike. For some reason of his own, he preferred that in my book I should reproduce the left.

For a man's hand, it is almost a perfect example of the 'Conic or Artistic' type, which I have described in Chapter 6, Part I. But in Lord Leighton's case, his hands were strong and elastic, which gave him the strength of will to hold in check his natural love of luxury and comfort. His artistic disposition, characteristic of this type, was however, much in evidence in his beautiful studio and in his home, where he lived more like a persian Prince in a palace than an Englishman.
