Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (8 January 1836 – 25 June 1912) was a Dutch painter of special British denizenship.
Born in Dronrijp, the Netherlands, and trained at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, Belgium, he settled in England in 1870 and spent the rest of his life there. A classical-subject painter, he became famous for his depictions of the luxury and decadence of the Roman Empire, with languorous figures set in fabulous marbled interiors or against a backdrop of dazzling blue Mediterranean Sea and sky.
Though admired during his lifetime for his draftsmanship and depictions of Classical antiquity, his work fell into disrepute after his death, and only since the 1960s has it been re-evaluated for its importance within nineteenth-century English art.

WHAT HTE FUCK
Casually reblogs this and then explodes
#okay #so in one little exchange#edmund shuts down miraz’s attempt to patronize him #corrects his knowledge #states that he is king and thus miraz’s equal #makes a witty joke about his title of the Just that sails right over miraz’s head #humbly affirms peter’s higher authority #and finishes off by making miraz look like an idiot #in under a minute he reverses and takes control of the entire discussion #as easily and casually as if he’s having a chat with reepicheep #lewis says that he was the diplomat-king #and my headcanon is that he was head of narnian espionage as well #because look at this boy how he dances with words #how he masters men three times his age #and tell me he wouldn’t be absolutely LETHAL
that’s my boy.
