Lawrence Alma-Tadema – part 3

Self-Portrait 1896 
oil on canvas 52.8 x 65.7 cm

Born in Dronrij, Holland, and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium. He settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there. 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.
Though admired during his lifetime for his draftsmanship and depictions of classical asubjects, his work fell out of favour after his death, and only since the 1960s has it been re-evaluated for its importance within nineteenth-century English art.

This is part 3 of a 3-part post on the works of Lawrence Alma-Tadema. For full biographical notes on Tadema see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 2 also.
