作品紹介・あらすじ

Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912) was one of the finest and most distinctive of the Victorian painters. Dutch-born, he moved to London in 1870, and became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean sea and sky. In this original and penetrating study, Rosemary Barrow presents an absorbing and often amusing portrait of an exuberant personality who carved out a brilliant career for himself at the heart of London's artistic and cultural elite. Most uniquely, she subjects the paintings to a fresh scrutiny, to reveal that Alma-Tadema, a knowledgeable student of antiquity, repeatedly used literary and archaeological allusions in his paintings to subvert their apparently innocent meaning. Neglected after his death, Alma-Tadema's paintings are once again admired for their exquisite beauty and their remarkable mastery of light, colour and texture. With its fresh and intriguing new insights into his personality and intentions as well as his works, this book now provides a challenging reassessment of a major artist and fascinating person.

    馬鹿重いのに、「日本じゃ買えないかも!」と思って根性出した(超過料金)が、アマゾンで買えたマジック。

    悔しいので、英語を跳ね飛ばして読み終わりました。

    タデマは「ヘリオガバルスの薔薇」が一番好きで、これまで収録している画集を見つけられずにいたのですが、これは解説もついていて満足。
    ただ、英語に慣れていないからか、「それはアンタの私見では」とツッコみたくなるところがチラホラあった…ような?

    ま、画集のつもりで買ったので、文句はありません。ただ重かった…。
