'' The Roses of Heliogabalus '' ( 1888 ) is a painting by the Anglo-Dutch artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. It is currently owned by the Spanish-Mexican billionaire businessman and art collector Juan Antonio Pérez Simón
The roses of Heliogabalus is one of his most famous paintings . It depicts the Roman emperor Egabalus (Heliogabalus), who tries to cover his unsuspecting audience with rose petals. Alma-Tadema, who was a perfectionist, wanted every petal to look as realistic as possible. In the winter of 1887-1888, thousands of rose petals from the Riviera were sent to him. This was a common practice of Alma-Tadema, who often ordered flowers from all over Europe and sometimes Africa as a model for his paintings
