Three beautiful Roman women watch from a high 'coign' (or corner) vantage point as ships return to their idyllic Italian port. Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema was one of the best known painters of Romanticism and a distinguished member of the Royal Academy of Arts. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.

  • About The Artist

      Sir Lawrence Alma- Tadema (1836-1912)
      Painter of scenes from everyday life in the ancient world who enjoyed an immense popularity in his time. The son of a Dutch notary who intended him for a medical career Alma-Tadema studied art at the Antwerp Academy (1852-58) under the historical painter Hendrik Leys assisting his master in 1859 with frescoes for the Stadhuis Antwerp. During a visit to Italy in 1863 Alma-Tadema became interested in Greek and Roman antiquity and Egyptian archaeology afterward depicting subjects almost exclusively from those sources. Moving to England he became a naturalized British subject in 1873 and was elected a member of the Royal Academy in 1879. He was knighted in 1899. Alma-Tadema excelled at the accurate re-creation of ancient settings costumes and the precise depiction of marble textures bronze and silk. His treatment of human figures is a mixture of restrained sentimentality and coy anecdote.
