A Day Dream (1863). Edward Poynter (English, Academic, 1836–1919). Oil on canvas. Exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1863. Poynter’s academic style was honed in Italy, where he met Leighton in 1853, and was persuaded to turn towards figurative painting. As much a part of the British artistic establishment as Leighton, Poynter embraced academia, working first as Slade Professor 1871-75, then as Director of the National Gallery 1894-1904; he was elected President of the Royal Academy in 1894.
