Publisher Review:

Sandro Botticelli (born Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi in 1445 and died in 1510) had the patronage of the (in)famous Lorenzo de‰_ Medici, and the two works considered his masterpieces, "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera" have become so popular that they have achieved clich_ status when trying to represent Renaissance art in Florence, Italy.åÊ
