Description

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.

The tours include exhibition highlights and insights into the fascinating life and career of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Doors open at 6pm; complimentary drink before the tour starts at 6:30pm

He was also responsible for leading the award-winning project to refurbish and restore Leighton House, completed between 2008 and 2010.
