With the patronage of the powerful Medici family, a canon of secular and religious work, and contributions to the celebrated Sistine Chapel, Sandro Botticelli was well placed for fame. After his death, however, his work was eclipsed for some four hundred years. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the painter began to gain major art-historical recognition. Today, Botticelli is hailed as a towering figure of the Florentine Early Renaissance. His secular works The Birth of Venus and Primavera are among the most recognized paintings in the world, resplendent in their delicate details, graceful lines, and compositional balance. This essential introduction presents key works from Botticelli’s oeuvre to understand the making of a Renaissance legend.
