Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity at Leighton House is an interesting set of works with some really great neo classical pieces. I’d not known Alma-Tadema work before but if you’ve seen any Hollywood biblical epic ever or sword and sandals epic you’ve seen his influence.  Gladiator almost lifts whole shots from his paintings.

After seeing three exhibitions at Leighton House I’m really impressed with the quality and consistency of their exhibitions in what is a slightly quirky gallery.
