Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema Glaucus and Nydia Art Print
ABOUT THIS PIECE
Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's Glaucus and Nydia was created in 1867 and is in Cleveland Museum of Art Ohio. The size of the work is 39 x 64,3 cm and is made of oil on wood panel.
"It was one of the few moments in her brief and troubled life that it was sweet to treasure." Weaving a rose garland as a present for her beloved master Glaucus, the blind servant Nydia resists speaking of her love for him. The scene is based on Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton's enormously popular historical novel The Last Days of Pompeii (published in 1835), a melodramatic epic set in ancient Roman times, which culminates with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
The Artist: Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836 - 1912) was a Dutch painter who later settled in the United Kingdom, becoming the last officially recognised denizen in 1873. Born in Dronrijp, the Netherlands, and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, he settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there.
