The Birth of Venus c tempera on canvas Botticelli Sandro Galleria degli Uffizi Florence Italy Giraudon The Bridgeman Art Library
“The Birth of Venus,” a mythological allegory and representation of spring by Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli (1444 – 1510), is one of the most recognizable images in the history of art. The lyrical painting of an ethereally delicate being is brought vividly to life through Botticelli’s mastery of supple forms, lines and exquisitely opalescent colors. A protégé of the Medici family Botticelli, virtually unknown centuries after his death, is also known for his glorious Sistine Chapel frescoes.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
