Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema

(1836-1912), Painter

Sitter in 40 portraits
Artist associated with 6 portraits
Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema was a painter. Born in Holland and trained in Antwerp, he exhibited at the Paris Salon and the Royal Academy. Alma-Tadema moved to London in 1870. He specialised in highly finished classical scenes of painstaking archaeological detail. While his artistic output decreased in his final years, the quality and ambition of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's paintings remained. Having devised a system of opus numbers for his more substantial works, the painting completed two months before his death numbered 408. He died in Germany while being treated for a stomach ulcer, and was buried in St Paul's Cathedral. A memorial exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts was organised in 1913.
