  • Additional Information on this Artwork:

    Anna (1867-1943) was the younger daughter of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, & his first wife who died in 1869. She was brought up in London by Tadema, & his second wife Laura, whose marriage was childless. Both Anna, & her elder sister seem to have retained into adult life, the timidity shown in the picture their father painted of them in childhood ( This is our corner, Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam). Anna was also the subject of a portrait by her father later in childhood (Miss Anna Alma-Tadema 1883 the Royal Academy), which was used by as a showcase for prospective patrons. Neither Anna, or her elder sister Laurence married, & after the death of their father lived in obscurity. In the case of Anna, this was extremely unfortunate, as she had considerable talent in her own right. She painted exceptionally good watercolours, highly detailed, & finished.
