Botticelli Reimagined - V&A

The Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is one of the greatest artists of all time, whose work has influenced product development, fashion design and artists as diverse as Andy Warhol, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Rene Magritte and Jeff Koons.

This book traces the fascinating history of the shifting appropriations and re-evaluations of his work right up to the present, and is the first to present Botticelli's work through a selection of more than forty originals by Botticelli in the context of these adaptations and interpretations in a range of media that spans painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, fashion and design.

'an innovative and far-reaching exhibition that explores the influence of Botticelli’s iconic artworks from the 15th century to the present day' - The Evening Standard

'The whole thing deserves five stars for provoking thought — especially the catalogue. Here he’s looked at from all sorts of angles, and we’re plunged into a vivid and interesting world: art history but also meta-art history — how art history is made. In mostly really well-written essays we learn how his career might have developed, what shape his life probably took, how he was regarded after he died, what factors contributed to the revival of his reputation and then to its decline once again, and revival again' - The Evening Standard
