Sandro Botticelli is today, as he was during his lifetime, one of the best-known artists from the Renaissance in Florence. He is known for his linear style of painting in which he accentuated the elegant contours of forms. He is also celebrated for being one of the first Renaissance masters to depict Classical subjects, as he did in his painting of Venus (c. 1490), which is on display in the exhibition in the United States for the very first time. This is a unique opportunity to view authentic and important Italian Renaissance art.
