The Van Gogh Museum Presented Alma-Tadema
On a day like today four years ago ArtDaily reported that the Van Gogh Museum was presenting the exhibition "Lawrence Alma-Tadema 1836-1912". In collaboration with the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, the Van Gogh Museum organized a retrospective of the work of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912). This artist, who was born in Friesland, Netherlands, but worked in London from 1870 on, was estremely successful in Victorian England and was one of the most celebrated and highly paid painters of his day. Alma-Tadema's works provide a poetic picture of the classical past, in which the well-to-do bourgeoisie liked to see its own relfection.

Cold marble, deep blue sees, sumptuous textiles and elegant figures -all stylized according to Victorian taste- evoke the ancient world in all its opulence. -1996
