Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema

       Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (8 January 1836 – 25 June 1912) was one of the most renowned painters of late 19th century Britain. Born in Dronrijp, the Netherlands and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, he settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there. A classical-subject painter, he became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky. Admired during his lifetime for his draftsmanship and depictions of Classical antiquity, he fell into disrepute after his death and only in the last 30 years has his work been reevaluated for its importance within 19th century English art.
