Présentation de l'éditeur

The sumptuous paintings of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema reveal more about nineteenth-century values than those of any other artist of the era. His elaborate reconstructions of ancient Rome, with languid women posed against white marble in dazzling sunlight, his forays into sentimentality, escapism and hedonism - and the nudity displayed in his depictions of Roman baths and bacchanalian revels - were adored by the Victorian public. He acquired fame, honours and wealth, only to have his pre-eminence undermined by the changing testes of a subsequent generation. In recent time, with the resurgence of enthusiasm for Victorian art, Alma-Tadema's achievements have been re-evaluated and his paintings are once again widely admired and have attained record prices at auction. Alma-Tadema was, paradoxically, a Dutchman who lived in England and painted Romans who were really ‘Victoriens in togas’. He was highly meticulous and doggedly Hard-working, a unique artist and a shrewd businessman who interpreted the eccentric desire of his contemporaries to see their ‘golden age’ compared with that of the Roman Empire and devoted his life to fulfilling this fantasy. In this elegant monograph Alma-Tadema's stylistic changes are investigated, as is his work in what he called ‘the sister arts’ such as his theatrical and costume designs. His important influence in many other media, from architecture to Hollywood epic film sets, is also considered in the fully illustrated biographical introduction. Featuring the finest works from international private and public collections, this book contains the greatest number of his paintings ever published. From intimate domestic scenes to vast panoramas crowded with figures and archaeological paraphernalia, the large-format colour plates provide a rare opportunity to savour their intricacy of detail and richness of colour and, above all, the amazing technical virtuosity of this extraordinary painter. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Full Page Reproductions! 14 novembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is filled with full page reproductions of Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema's paintings. It also has an interesting bio with pictures of his home, studio, and himself. I've been looking everywhere for a great book on Alma Tadema and I believe this is the one. Besides reading about a painter's life, I think it is very important that we see color reproductions of the painter's work, and this book does it very well. I hate books with 4x4 black and white images of an artist's paintings, its useless. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for lovers of Victorian art and Alma Tadema. I recently went to the Getty Museum and saw Alma Tadema's "Spring" and it looks exactly how it appears in the book. The full page color plates are exact reproductions of his paintings, unlike the newer book on Alma Tadema published by Phaidon whose reproductions have been altered and all appear saturated with blue hues. Anyways....GET THIS BOOK IF YOU CAN ONLY GET ONE BOOK ON ALMA TADEMA BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Alma-Tadema,an artist 7 août 2001
Par Professor Emeritus P. Bagnolo - Publié sur
Format: Relié
So that you willunderstand my perspective, I am a professor and a painter mostly of large scale, representational figures, so I buy anything to do with artists who specialize in the figure. In Russel Ash's book, the reproductions were large and fairly clearly reproduced. I enjoy the art of the late 19th and early twentieth century and the detailed realism of Tadema's female figures was, though academic in development, fun to see. Of that era I prefer Waterhouse and others, whose sense of color and less passive work is more powerful and deep, but if you like figure paintings especially of "Victorians in toga's" as one critic of his day describes Alma-Tadema's work, then you will love the large format reproductions. The book is lavishly adorned with semi-nude, sleepy-eyed, languid, supple, neo-classical women and a few men, all painted in the always safe, pastellish colors of the time. The women are engaged in mostly pastoral time passing non-events. "The Roses of Heliogabllus", with it's profusion of rose petals was easily the most colorfully of the reproductions, and a large composition of "Joseph Overseer..." as the most powerful of his offerings. The bio of Alma-Tadema was interesting enough to make me want to know more. If you are an art lover, a collector of large format books of painters, even the 19th cnetury academic styles, this is a good one for you

The color plates included are of Tadema's most popular pieces. The size and brilliance of the plates in this book are beautifully presented. At this time, there isn't a better value available of this incredible artist's work.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful representation of Alma-Tadema and his work 7 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
_Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema_ is very well-organized, and Russell Ash provides informative insight into Alma-Tadema's life and the substance of his paintings. Each plate is accompanied by an informative vignette which further enhances the effect of each beautiful piece. The sample of art as a whole is well-chosen and certainly representative of Alma-Tadema's body of work, but one would like to see more paintings included. Altogether, a wonderful value.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awash in Victorian Romance and Classicism! 26 août 2005
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The Victorian painters are enjoying a posthumous comeback and one of the more famous of these elegant painters was Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema. Exceedingly popular in his time, the modern, reductionist movements of the post-Freud 20th Century brushed his work under the rug - except for those collectors and lovers of the human figure who refused to allow the body to be cubed, flattened, distorted, and abstracted.

Now with the return of the appreciation of the human form Alma Tadema's paintings are enjoying a resurgence of popularity. Russell Ash certainly gives us reason to see why in this lavishly illustrated, beautiful book filled to overflowing with complete paintings and fragments or details of perfect ladies languishing in flora and classical vistas. Paintings that once were labeled as 'corny' are now being appreciated as suggestions of what made the Victorian Era unique.

Ash writes well and thoughtfully minimizes written word space for the flow of the pictorial value of the book. This is simply a lovely volume honoring a misunderstood and in the past under appreciated artist. Grady Harp, August 05
