The Alma Tadema-Epps family had a special bond with Hendrik Willem Mesdag. Discover the work of Lourens Alma Tadema, Laura Theresa Epps and Ellen Epps in this temporary presentation.
The painters Lourens Alma Tadema and Hendrik Willem Mesdag were second cousins and good friends. When Mesdag decided to become a painter, Alma Tadema helped him on his way.
Even though Alma Tadema had moved to London, the cousins still kept in close contact. The Mesdags owned a number of paintings by Lourens Alma Tadema, his wife Laura Theresa Epps and her sister Ellen Epps.
The collection was on display in Alma Tadema and Mesdag: Two Artist Families.
