Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836 – 1912) was a Dutch-born British painter. 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. Alma-Tadema was a perfectionist. He worked tirelessly to make the most of his paintings, often repeatedly reworking parts of paintings before he found them satisfactory to his own high standards. His work shows much of the fine execution and brilliant color of the old Dutch masters. Though admired during his lifetime for his draftsmanship and depictions of Classical antiquity, his work fell into disrepute after his death, and only since the 1960s has it been re-evaluated for its importance within nineteenth-century English art.
