Text by Gabriel Dette, Bastian Eclercy, Cristina A. Painter of such classic Orphic allegories as "Primavera" (c. 1482), "Venus and Mars" (c. 1483) and "The Birth of Venus" (c. 1485), Botticelli is, like Vermeer, a relatively recent rediscovery for art history, having been elected to posthumous stardom by the Victorian Pre-Raphaelites only after several centuries of neglect.

Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (c. 1445 – May 17, 1510), known as Sandro Botticelli (/ˌbɒtɪˈtʃɛli/, Italian: ), was an Italian painter of the Early Renaissance. He belonged to the Florentine School under the patronage of Lorenzo de' Medici, a movement that Giorgio Vasari would characterize less than a hundred years later in his Vita of Botticelli as a "golden age".

Throughout the panels Botticelli paid close attention to the architecture, which encompasses a variety of contemporary styles in Florence. Bastian Eclercy in Botticelli: Likeness, Myth, Devotion. Ed. Andreas Schumacher. Exh. ca. Städel Museum. Initially he had intended to show the left-hand palace of the MMA panel with an arched façade: the arches were incised into the gesso preparation. The rich pilasters and entablature establish a contrast with the simplicity of the palace and church façade in the right background. Typical of his work at this moment of his career is the exiguous figures with their agitated, frenetic movement and the tunneling vistas provided by the buildings.

Sandro Botticelli was an Italian painter of the Florentine school, working during the Early Renaissance. Little is known about his early life and education, other than he was apprenticed around the age of fourteen, which was a young age for an art apprentice. His master was Fra Filippo Lippi, who was influenced by Masaccio’s paintings, and taught Botticelli a delicate and detailed style.

The art of Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) remains the epitome of the Florentine accomplishment during the Quattrocento, under the golden age of the reign of Lorenzo di Medici. Painter of such classic Orphic allegories as "Primavera" (c. 1482), "Venus and Mars" (c. 1483) and "The Birth of Venus" (c. 1485), Botticelli is, like Vermeer, a relatively recent rediscovery for art history, having been elected to posthumous stardom by the Victorian Pre-Raphaelites only after several centuries of neglect. The first monograph on Botticelli was published in 1893, and between 1900 and 1920, more books were written on him than on any other painter; today his name is synonymous with the aspirations and feats of Renaissance painting at its finest. This massive and splendid volume celebrates the graceful beauty of his women and the courtly solemnity of his compositional sense. One focus here is Botticelli's portraits, particularly those that depict his circle of patrons, for whose palaces he in turn created his grand mythological vignettes. Emphasis is also placed upon Renaissance ideals of feminine beauty as expressed in so many of Botticelli's works, not only in his images of Roman deities and of the Virgin Mary, but also of contemporary Florentine courtiers. With nearly 200 color illustrations, this book sets a decisive new benchmark for monographs on Renaissance art and on this perennial master.Called "The Little Barrel" ("Il Botticello"), Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, today known as Sandro Botticelli was apprenticed to Fra Filippo Lippi in the early 1460s and had his own workshop by 1470. Ten years later he was among the artists commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV to produce frescos for the walls of the Sistine Chapel. By the time of his death in 1510 he was among Florence's most influential artists, yet it was not until the English art historian Walter Pater revived his name in the 1870s that his work began to receive the adulation it is now accorded.

One of the best catalogs on Botticelli- Wonderful essays and a great bibliography

great resource

I am astounded that only one person has left a review of this perfect art book on a superb artist. one wants to know certain specific things about an art book. first, the reproductions are spectacular, whole pages; clear, accurate tones; plentiful. the essays are informative, interesting, enlightening, and uncluttered or bogged with jargon. this is fine expertise that avoids the academic analysis that is so clunky and off-putting. the book also covers other renaissance painters, those in botticelli's circle and studio. this is probably a top 10 art book I have looked at. depending on what one is willing to pay, this is no way a possible disappointment
