Ninety-Four Degrees in the Shade - Description

Ninety-Four Degrees in the Shade is an oil painting completed in the year 1877 by the artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema of London. The painting’s style differs slightly from the majority of Alma-Tadema’s with the artist taking a much more modern approach to the time period in which he paints. This in turn has a drastic effect on the aesthetic qualities that govern the painting. The subject is dressed in Victorian clothing. He lies on his stomach in a field of wheat, indicating that his age is most likely no more than twelve. Above him a straw field stretches forth into a daytime scene filled with overtones of bright blues and deep gold. Ninety-Four Degrees in the Shade uniquely shifts the paradigm of landscapes dominated by marble so common in Alma-Tadema’s work. Here is a painting whose landscape is made of naked earth and a subject clad in tightly woven garments rather than pastel togas and floral arrangements. Visually the painting is constructed around a zig-zagging line common to many of Alma-Tadema’s works. This classical arrangement sets the subject at the base of the painting acting as the starting point for the eye rather than as the focal point. Instead, the line travels up the perimeter of the surrounding green brush, coinciding with the haystack to form the center of the piece. Its top runs into the horizon line separating the field from the sky.
