The beauty and femininity of Lawrence Alma Tadema's paintings have ensured a strong backing from the public, despite a mixed reception from academics over the centuries since his career took hold.
The classically-styled scenes with slim, light skinned models reminds many of the Pre-Raphaelite artists and both held a similar relationship with art academics. Some considered them lacking in imagination or technical innovation, but the art public always found their work enchanting and accessible. Alma Tadema would live in the UK for some time and this might explain the similarities but there are also other influences visible in his work.
The bright skies set against white stone architecture and reclining models has made Alma Tadema's work a popular choice for art print reproductions. There is a good selection to choose from and with the copyright having run out many years ago, most retailers are able to offer a full collection of his work. With each and every artwork, there is then a choice of accompanying products such as frames and inlay cards. Different styles and materials of frames will suit different paintings, with the bright, beautiful work of this artist being best suited to fairly simple frames that allow the artwork to take the full focus.
Those whose taste is suited to the style of Alma-Tadema will surely find something to purchase as an art print from such a large selection. This was an artist who was just as productive as he was talented, completing a huge list of highly detailed paintings across his lifetime, as well as many study drawings too.
