The artist

Alessandro Filipepi, dit Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510)

Sandro Botticelli is undoubtedly a major painter of the Italian Renaissance. Humanist, his painting is inspired by Antiquity and takes up its canons. Botticelli is a virtuoso of painting, he creates an expressive and virile style, an experimenter he does not hesitate to use compositions and angles sometimes daring. Close to the powerful of his time, Botticelli benefited from the protection and patronage of the Medici, for whom he notably created one of the most famous paintings in the history of art: the birth of Venus, the paroxysm of the artist's feminine ideal. Botticelli also participated alongside Michelangelo in the decoration of the Sistine Chapel and illustrated his famous Divine Comedy for Dante.
