Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) was one of the finest and most distinctive of the Victorian painters- An absorbing and often amusing portrait of an artist famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire- Fresh and intriguing new insights into his personality and intentions provide a challenging reassessment of a major artist- Reveals that Alma-Tadema, a knowledgeable student of antiquity, repeatedly used literary and archaeological allusions in his paintings to subvert their apparently innocent meaning

Synopsis:

The Victorian painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema was renowned for his depictions of the decadence of Ancient Rome, and is enjoying renewed popularity and attention. This illustrated study presents a lively portrait of the artist and an analysis of his often subversive manipulation of his sources.
