Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema was perhaps the most famous painter of late-nineteenth-century Britain; he was really brought into the world in the Netherlands. He was prepared at the Academy of Antwerp, Belgium; at that point, he moved to England in 1870, until his passing in 1912. An old-style subject painter, he got popular for his oil painting of the extravagance and debauchery of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in marvelous marbled insides or against a set of amazing blue Mediterranean ocean and sky compositions. Generally respected for his amazing draftsmanship and portrayals of Classical artifacts, during his lifetime, he fell into offensiveness after his demise, and just over the most recent thirty years has his works of art have been reconsidered for their significance inside nineteenth-century English workmanship.
