Enchanted world of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Delight in a selection of lavish depictions of domestic life in antiquity by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836 - 1912) to celebrate the exhibition of his work at the Leighton House Museum: Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity (7 July – 29 October 2017).

Born in the north of the Netherlands, the exhibition traces the artist's early training and move to London in 1870 where he established a hugely successful career at the heart of the artistic establishment. His work fixed ideas in the popular imagination of what life in the ancient past ‘looked like’ – ideas and images that were taken to the stage, film and that remain with us today.
