In the Tepidarium - Oil Painting by Dutch Artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema 1881



Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, (1836 – 1912) was a Dutch painter.
Born in Dronrijp, the Netherlands, and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, he settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there. A classical-subject painter, he became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean Sea and sky.
