Alma Tadema! Again! Thanks God(zilla)!

Ha ha! This is published -once more- on request!
Four BIG Alma Tadema's for your viewing pleasure (clik to enlarge) and -as always- against the Mafia degli scarabocchi :-)
And a long list of all (?) his paintings...

Here you are, gentlemen and gentles-ladies with four BIG (click on them) insuperable paintings:
A Favourite custom
A Silent Greeting
Silver favourites (a very famous one)
God Speed


Note that Alma Tadema was a 'ridller': "time and again the seeming innocence of the scenes he depicts is subverted by a mischievously placed inscription or statue, suggesting to the initiated a darker and usually risque meaning".
