ART: New exhibition located in the Lower Belvedere gives insight into the life and work of Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and invites one and all to dive into the decadent world of English aestheticism. His compositions shaped the way people imagined life during antiquity and inspired the costume designs and set concepts for epic historical film productions such as Quo Vadis? by Enrico Guazzoni (1913) and Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000).
