Picture Gallery

Alma Tadema painted pictures without deep-meaning or significance, essentially his work was decorative. His painting of metal objects was brilliant, but what really made him as a successful artist was his ability to paint marble, so popular in those times of nostalgia for ancient civilisations. His work tended to be frozen moments in time, and to be photographic in nature, rather like that of Tissot.

He was also a distinguished and accomplished portrait painter. In truth Alma Tadema was a man of his time, and a highly successful entrepreneur-he gave the prosperous self-made picture buyers what they wanted. Alma Tadema has left behind a large number of beautiful decorative pictures.
