Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, OM, RA ( 1836 - 1912) was one of the most renowned painters of late nineteenth century Britain. Alma- Tadema's works are remarkable for the way in which flowers, textures and hard reflecting substances, like metals, pottery, and especially marble, are painted - indeed, his realistic depiction of marble led him to be called the 'marbelous painter'. Lawrence Alma- Tadema Paintings show much of the fine execution and brilliant colour of the old Dutch masters.
