Alma-Tadema Symposium Recording Available to View

Posted on 26 October 2017

Last week's 3 day symposium 'Alma-Tadema: Antiquity at Home and on Screen' was a huge success, bringing together students and scholars from a wide range of disciplines to explore the work and influence of 19th-century artist Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

Hosted by the Paul Mellon Centre, the symposium tied in with the Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity exhibition which has been on international tour and is now in its final location at the Leighton House Museum, London.  The exhibition was organized by the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden (Friesland), where Alma-Tadema lived as a boy; and was guest co-curated by Elizabeth Prettejohn (University of York), Peter Trippi (independent scholar, New York), and Ivo Blom (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam).
