Bouguereau of the Week Feature Now Changed

I've had a good run since June showing different works of William Adolphe Bouguereau at the top of my sidebar. But it's time for something new and different, so for a while, I'm going to exhibit works by the great Anglo-Dutch Neoclassical painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Most of his corpus consists of idealized portraits of Greco-Roman society. This week's is A Coign of Vantage. A coign is a corner of a building, this one apparently granting people a good view of the harbor below.
