Now available in a new edition, this celebration of the life and art of the Renaissance genius presents Sandro Botticelli's complete paintings and offers a comprehensive and thoroughly up-to-date study of his work. Botticelli is one of the most admired artists of the Renaissance period and his seductive Venus and graceful Primavera are
among the world's most recognizable works of art. This catalogue raisonné of Botticelli's paintings offers more than two hundred full-color illustrations and meticulous scholarship by the
distinguished Renaissance art historian Frank Zöllner, described
by The Financial Times, when reviewing this book's previous
edition, as "a fabulous, accessible scholar; his book has luscious
reproductions and exquisite detail." Presented in chronological
order, the facts of Botticelli's life and career are insightfully
discussed against the background of the artistic upheaval that
marked the Renaissance period. The artist's reinterpretations of
ancient myths as well as his religious paintings are thoughtfully
explored in this sumptuously illustrated volume, which will
please scholars and delight lovers of fine art books everywhere.
