Synopsis

Celebrates one of the greatest and most beloved painters of the Early Renaissance with luxurious, large-format images Sandro Botticelli, one of the greatest painters of the Italian High Renaissance, enjoyed the patronage of the greatest Florentine families. He 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. This sumptuously produced volume features an updated, full-colour selection of the artist's works made for the original 1937 edition by Ludwig Goldscheider, co-founder of Phaidon Press. The original essay by Lionello Venturi is accompanied by a new introduction from Renaissance specialist Alessandro Cecchi, putting Botticelli and his school into a contemporary context. Elegant design, fine papers and tipped-on image plates make this a true collector's edition.

Lionello Venturi (1885-1961) was a renowned Italian art historian, critic and Professor of Art History at the University of Turin and, later, at the University of Rome. Alessandro Cecchi held the post of Curator of Renaissance Paintings at the Uffizi and was Director of the Galleria Palatina, Pitti Palace, in Florence. He is the author of Botticelli (2005) and numerous works on Renaissance art.
