Anna Alma-Tadema and her youth
Anna Alma-Tadema was a British artist and suffragette born in 1867. Her early works, drawings and paintings consisted mainly of portraits and interior representations. She was influenced by her father, the talented painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. She showed her work to him in a joint exhibition, also including her mother-in-law, Laura Theresa Alma-Tadema. She took part in major exhibitions throughout her career, such as the Royal Academy of Arts and World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
A decisive family context
She was brought up in London with her family and received an education mainly at home. As her father was a painter himself, he depicted her at least twice in his work. Art was at the heart of Anna’s education. Her father came into contact with many influences from ancient history, and developed a style that was emulated by his two daughters, Laurence and Anna, as well as by other artists. When her father died, the popularity of his work and style were sought after for decades. Anna’s sister was a literary artist who produced poetry, short stories, reviews and plays.
An artist who has been recognised and rewarded on numerous occasions
Alma Tadema created throughout her career numerous portraits, flower representations and watercolours depicting the interiors of houses and other buildings (Miss Tessa Gosse). This and other works such as The Misty Valley and The Gold Room were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts.
She made several watercolours representing the interior of her family home. Indeed, the latter was extravagantly decorated to resemble a Roman villa as much as possible.
The painting The Drawing Room, which she painted as a teenager, was exhibited at the famous Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893. The Gold Room was also a representation of her family home.
Her work was exhibited for over forty years in England, from 1885 to 1928. She was also exhibited at the Royal Academy, which included about fifty of her works. Her work was also exported to Parisian exhibitions and was awarded a gold medal.
Her work is still on display today, notably at the Victoria and Albert Museum in an exhibition in 2011: The Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900.
