Self-portrait found in ‘The Roses of Heliogabalus’ / Study
and Interpretation of a detail in ‘The Roses of Heliogabalus’
by Lawrence Alma Tadema
Whilst admiring the beauty of this painting, the artists attention was caught by a particular detail of a portrait of one of the characters being immersed in rose petals. The half-covered face remined the artist of his personal life experiences in which he felt inundated with contrasting emotions of happiness and pain.
