Botticeli : Taschen Basic (HB)

Botticeli : Taschen Basic (HB)


Italian Renaissance painting expert Barbara Deimling’s study of Florence-born Sandro Botticelli is a well-researched and beautifully illustrated exploration of the life and works of the artist whose patronage by the all-powerful ruling Medici family encouraged and enabled him to paint the transcendental Birth of Venus, and contribute to the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel.

Little known beyond his native city until the Pre-Raphaelites reignited interest in his intimate compositions by paying them homage four centuries later, Botticelli’s graceful lines, delicate execution and stylistic balance are cited as significant influences by latter-day acolytes including Magritte, Warhol and Cindy Sherman.

Containing reproductions of key works from the colossus of the Florentine Early Renaissance, this volume is an essential introduction to an artist whose contribution to the art world, both contemporary, and of his day, cannot be underestimated.
