Alma-Tadema and the 19th Century English Painters. The Perez Simon Collection is the title of an exhibition held until June 5th, 2014 at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome.
Alma-Tadema and the 19th Century English Painters (Chiostro del Bramante, until June 5th, 2014).
It is the first time that a museum in Italy hosts an exhibition dedicated to the most well-known Victorian painters, such as Alma-Tadema, Lord Frederick Leighton, Albert Moore and Edward Poynter.
The main characteristic these artists had in common was their focus on the “cult of beauty”. For this exhibition in almost every painting there is a woman as the focal point.
The exhibition consists of 50 paintings from the Perez Simon collection and includes pre-Raphaelite painters like Millais and Rossetti, but also Burnes Jones and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who was of Dutch origin and especially famous for his works showing the opulence and decadence during the times of the Roman Empire.
- “Crenaia, the Nymph of the Dargle Waterfall“ also by Leighton.
- “A Cloud Passes” by Arthur Hughes.
- “The Roses of Eliogabalo” by Alma Tadema.
