Sandro Botticelli

The Birth of Venus, his most popular painting

Botticelli was an Italian painter during the renaissance period and throughout his time his paintings were looked as the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting. He is known for his work; The Birth of Venus and Primavera. When I saw his painting Venus and Mars, I was eager to see more of his paintings and I noticed that he portrays a lot of the same themes in his paintings. All of his paintings have a certain beauty to them that attracted me. Every painting that I looked at have grace to it. The reason why I choose to share Botticelli to the class, is because I feel like it’s important to know and learn about the entire artist that came before us and started a legacy. I also feel like paint artist like Sandro Botticelli that are from old time periods are not appreciates as much as music from that time period.
