The Watercolors of Anna Alma-Tadema

The reputation of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema has been revived lately thanks to the major exhibition of his paintings at the Leighton House Museum last year. His daughter Anna (1867–1943) was an equally talented artist in her own right. I would like to see her given proper due. Below is a selection of her watercolors and a self-portrait in oil.
