About author:

Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema ( /ˈælmə ˈtædɪmə/;[1] 8 January 1836 – 25 June 1912), OM, RA, was one of the most renowned painters of late nineteenth-century Britain.
Born in Dronrijp, the Netherlands, and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, 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.
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 reevaluated for its importance within nineteenth-century English art.

    Conceived in Dronrijp, the Netherlands, and prepared at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, he settled in England in 1870 and spent whatever remains of his life there. A traditional subject painter, he ended up plainly well known for his delineations of the extravagance and wantonness of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in breathtaking marbled insides or against a scenery of astonishing blue Mediterranean ocean and sky. http://www.dissertationshouse.co.uk/free-essay

    In spite of the fact that appreciated amid his lifetime for his draftsmanship and portrayals of Classical artifact, his work fell into offensiveness after his demise, and just since the 1960s has it been reconsidered for its significance inside nineteenth-century English workmanship. http://www.essaysolution.co.uk/write-my-essay
