He had two sisters, Alexandra, who was three years older than he; and Augusta, who was five years younger. The Leightons were a very close family, devoted to each other, and when Leighton died Alexandra tirelessly campaigned for his house to be preserved as a memorial. This particular portrait shows her in severe dress after the death of her father in 1892.
