The late paintings of Victorian artist Frederic Leighton generally embody an abstract idea or concept instead of a specific story or moral. Many of these images express humanity's experience of the passage of time as it relates to life, death, and rebirth. Leighton's paintings The Garden of the Hesperides, Lachrymae, and Flaming June represent allegories of timelessness, death, and regeneration, respectively.
