CATALOGUE NOTE
Eton College was founded in 1440 and is one of the oldest schools in the country. The south side of the college is dominated by the perpendicular architecture of the college chapel. Building began in 1441 on the chapel, but the original grandiose design was not completed as Edward IV usurped the throne and cut off most of EtonÂ’s revenues. The present building was intended to be merely the choir of a much larger church. Bishop Waynflete paid for the completion of the Antechapel at the wesern end of the building in 1479. The Chapel is a fine example of fifteenth century Perpendicular Gothic architecture with some of the most remarkable mediaeval wall paintings in Northern Europe. Anna Alma-Tadema was the second eldest daughter of Lawrence Alma-Tadema and his first wife who died when she was only two years old. She inherited her father's talent in capturing detail which also reflects the influence of Dutch painting.

Description:
Anna Alma-Tadema (1867-1943) Flags inscribed with initials 'LAT', for Lawrence Alma-Tadema (lower centre) oil on panel 32 1/8 x 2½ in. (81.5 x 7.3 cm.) Provenance Painted for the Alma-Tademas' house, 17 Grove End Road, St John's Wood; sold Hampton & Sons, London, 11 June 1913, lot 584. C.P. Mason; Sotheby's Belgravia, 5 November 1974, lot 56. Anon. sale, Sotheby's Belgravia, 29 June 1976, lot 94, when acquired by the present owner. Literature Literature R. de Cordova, 'The Panels in Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's Hall', Strand Magazine, vol. XXIV, no. 144, December 1902, p. 622, illus. Exhibited The Painter was a Lady, 1986-7, no. 1. Ladies of the Brush, 1994-5, no. 2. Lot Notes According to De Cordova, 'Miss Alma-Tadema's panel was a birthday gift to her father, and is a reminiscence of Queen Victoria's Jubilee. It consists of flags of various nations floating in the breeze...There is in it a conceit as beautiful as it is refined...The lowermost flag is that of Holland, which no-one needs reminding is the country of Sir Lawrence's birth. Adorning the flag is a laurel wreath surrounding the initials LAT, and the whole world has united with the country of his birth in offering him that recognised mark of greatest distinction.' It is not clear whether the artist was thinking of the Golden Jubilee of 1887 or the Diamond Jubilee of 1897, but the picture was certainly painted before 1902, the year of De Cordova's article. At some date after 1906 she contributed another panel to the scheme, entitled London Fog (sold Hampton's, London, 11 June 1913, lot 586; Sotheby's Belgravia, 5 November 1974, lot 58). Each measuring a mere 2½ inches wide, the two panels were the narrowest in the entire sequence. In the case of Flags, this was particularly evident since the panel was placed immediately to the left of the widest of all the paintings, Marcus Stone's In the Garden.
