About the Artist

Botticelli Sandro (Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi) (1444/5-1510)

Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, known as Sandro Botticelli (1445 – 1510), 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 Botticellias as a "golden age". Botticelli's posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century; since then his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting. Among Botticelli's best known works are The Birth of Venus and Primavera.
