Unconscious Rivals

Item is in stockHurry! Low inventoryItem is out of stock Item is unavailable
This glamorous depiction of two women lounging in an ancient Roman villa is typical of Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who became interested in ancient Greece and Rome after visiting Pompeii in 1893. Traditionally the young women have been interpreted as rivals in love awaiting the attentions of the same man. Themes of love are also suggested in the subjects of the marble sculptures, such as the relief of Cupid trying on a mask of Silenus. The artist based these sculptures on artefacts found in Roman museums.  
Oil on panel, 1893.
