Lawrence Alma-Tadema

Lawrence Alma-Tadema was one of the most renowned painters of late nineteenth century Britain. He was trained in Antwerp – and like many of his Dutch contemporaries, began by mastering the art of genre painting, specialising in historical scenes.

Lawrence Alma-Tadema began with medieval subjects, but then following a visit to Pompeii in 1863 - turned to the ancient world. His art prints evoke a Hollywood vision of ancient Greece and Rome (and sometimes Egypt), with their sensuous depiction of beautiful women, exotic costumes, and marbled settings. Universally admired for his superb draftsmanship and 'real to life' depictions of Classical antiquity he was much sought after by Victorian collectors who intimately connected with his vision.
