Alma-Tadema was a Dutch painter who moved to England in 1870, he had a successful career and was lavished with personal and professional honors in his life time. His Neo-classical ancient Roman, Greek and portrayals of Egyptian life were highly popular with Victorian society. They also showed the artist’s knowledge of archaeology and social history.
Vain Courtship was commissioned by Thomas Agnew & Sons. The scene was set in the corner of a second storey Classical portico of his home in St. John’s Wood, and its subject the forlorn sense of distant unrequited love.
