Botticelli

Botticelli’s elegant, melancholy Florentine Maddonas represent a poetic response to Renaissance innovation, not reflecting a visually “real” world so much as creating a mystic alternative of drooping grace.


Botticelli’s elegant, melancholy Florentine Maddonas represent a poetic response to Renaissance innovation, not reflecting a visually “real” world so much as creating a mystic alternative of drooping grace, brilliant colours and flowing contours. He also, however, applied this style to such innovative classical subjects as The Birth of Venus and Primavera, as well as developing a crisp, hard-edged portrait style which won him the patronage of the powerful Medici family. This talk looks at the range of his work, his involvement with the dangerous religious politics of his time and the profound influence he would have on such Victorian artists as Evelyn De Morgan and Edward Burne-Jones.
