English painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema recovers the imagery of Ancient Greece in a delightful scene of three women who scan the see and themselves, their charms and their lover. I like their dress, their crowns of flowers, the cleanliness of the watchtower, the lightness of the attitudes and behaviors. There’s no conspiracy, only freedom of a lost world. . .
The begins of Art Nouveau esthetically pleasing movement are clear and steady.
