Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema - English Classicist Painter, (1836-1912)

More pictures of the  - Alma-Tadema Lawrence 
The paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema reveal much about 19th-century values. His languid women posed against white marble in dazzling sunlight, his forays into sentimentality, escapism and hedonism were adored by the Victorian public. He acquired fame, honour and wealth, only to have his pre-eminence undermined by the changing tastes of a subsequent generation.
