Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema

  "Alma-Tadema's painting so beautifully and expertly captures Plutarch's story, illustrating the spirit and strength of women and peace in a time of war. I love the elements of sisterhood—of the modest women of Amphissa protecting the lovely and languid women of Phocis. Alma-Tadema's clean, blue-hued palette has the feel of early morning and of sins forgiven—or forgotten—in a new beginning."

"As an undergraduate at Williams twenty-five years ago, I was captivated by this work. The mystery and narrative component are compelling, as is the masterful academic realism. I sadly don't get back to the Clark very often, but when I do, I am still drawn immediately to this canvas."
