Why not also visit Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity (from 7 July at Leighton House Museum). Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity is the largest exhibition devoted to the artist to be held in London since 1913. The show explores Lawrence Alma-Tadema’s fascination with the representation of domestic life in antiquity and how this interest related to his own domestic circumstances expressed through the two remarkable studio-houses that he created in St John’s Wood together with his wife Laura and daughters.
