EMPIRES RESTORED, ELYSIUM REVISITED: THE ART OF SIR LAWRENCE ALMA-TADEMA. Jennifer Gordon Lovett et al. Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, 1991. Organized in association with Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore. 124 pp. with 62 ills. (47 col.). 31 x 23 cm. LC 91-27468 ISBN 0931102308 In English.
Accompanies the first significant American exhibition devoted to Dutch-born British painter Alma-Tadema (1836-1912), an artist whose sentimental portraits and meticulous depictions of domestic scenes set in ancient Rome were enormously popular among English and American collectors of the Victorian period but were held in low esteem for many years after his death. Featuring fine color reproductions of 39 oils and several watercolors drawn from public and private collections in North America, the catalogue includes substantial thematic and stylistic commentaries on the works and three essays discussing Alma-Tadema's career, his distinctive personality and the social and historical context of his oeuvre.
