Sandro Botticelli

Sandro Botticelli Florentine painter of the Italian Renaissance who was one of the first visual artists to celebrate feminine beauty.
When he opened his studio in 1470, the first orders were those of the city of Florence and the Church... But very quickly Botticelli's painting, influenced by the Neoplatonists, followers of beauty, was modernized and highlighted contemplation and melancholy through majestic allegories.
He is one of the first painters to dare female nudes and he is undeniably one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, with "Le Printemps" and "La Naissance de Venus" (both exhibited at the Uffizi in Florence), his two most famous works.
