Point of Advantages - Description

From London comes Coign of Vantage, a painting by the late Victorian artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. The painting was completed in1895 at the artist’s home in England following a trip to Paris. Coign of Vantage is a small work with a breadth of roughly twenty-five centimeters. Its height measures at almost eighteen. The small size of this rectangular piece provides an interesting perspective for the viewer who is allowed to peek just over the small island below the head of the woman who is peering over the side. They are quite a distance above the ocean. This painting acts as an invitation for the viewer to sit on the ledge with the ladies and enjoy the coign, or projecting corner and the view of the ship below. Created in oil, this piece rings true to Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema’s style of painting classical scenes. This piece is classically arranged with the forms guiding the eye from the head of the dark panther statue down through the two women and finally hurtling over the edge through the eyes of the one woman who is seen peering down. The bodies are arranged to flow in a zig-zagging pattern up through the painting as well. The subjects in this painting are designed to interact harmoniously with their surroundings. The hint of this painting is that the extent of these subjects’ troubles begin and end with the sublime expanse of air and water around them. They seem to be content with their fawning and gazing and the result is the feeling of a daydream in antiquity.
