Sandro Botticelli

Sandro Botticelli (1445 –1510), was an Italian painter and draughtsman of the Early Renaissance. During his lifetime he was one of the most acclaimed painters in Italy, being summoned to take part in the decoration of the Sistine Chapel in Rome and earning the patronage of the leading families of Florence, including the Medici.
Botticelli’s style included a flowing characteristic that would clearly identify work as his; the Neo-Platonis. This meant that he would bring together in one painting ideas that belong to both Christianity and pagan ideas which may have included mythology. One theme that Botticelli used over and over again was the idea of a very sad young girl that was detached from what was going on around her. This theme appeared in many of his portraits throughout his career. Among Botticelli's best-known works are The Birth of Venus and Primavera available here at artrepublic among others of his beautiful art prints.
