“It is among the minor followers of Alma-Tadema that the classical ideal is reduced to its lowest level of banality . . . [whose] pictures follow a repetitive formula— girls in vaguely classical robes on terraces, or in gardens, engaged in entirely frivolous occupations involving courtship, animals and flowers.” — Christopher Wood
