This luxurious, large-format book celebrates Sandro Botticelli, one of the greatest painters of the Italian High Renaissance. Botticelli spent most of his career in the humanist circle of the Medici, for whom he painted such masterpieces as Primavera and Venus and Mars, works that combine a decorative use of line with Classical elements in harmonious and supple compositions.
Elegant design, fine papers and tipped-on image plates make this a true collector's edition.
