Ask Me No More - Description

Victorian painter Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema painted Ask Me No More in the year 1906. A work of oil, the painting measures over three feed in width with a height of thirty one and one half inches. The painting’s visual center is found on the head of the woman to the right whose outstretched hand is being kissed by the man in the blue robe. The woman’s head erupts in fiery tones of orange cheeks. This is technique beloved by Alma-Tadema, whose female subjects often bear the trait. Below her face she is fair skinned, creating a beautiful contrast to the spectacle that sits atop her head. Its radiance is heightened by the use of a bright blue background. This causes the orange hair to jump off of the canvas and therefore is responsible for the eye’s immediate gravitation towards it. It is important to take notice of the decorative garments worn by the two subjects and the bouquet of flowers that the woman’s left hand touches. The man’s sandals and flowered ear are indicative of Alma-Tadema’s tendency to recreate classical garments in a fantastical manner, often to highlight a greater theme of decadence often hinted at in his paintings. Alma-Tadema primarily painted classic scenes, arranging certain aesthetic elements to fit the manner of whatever he was trying to accomplish at the time of his present work.
