Sandro Botticelli Biography

(b Florence, Italy, 1445; d Florence, 1510) Italian painter. Born Alessandro di Mariano Filipepi, Botticelli is, with the possible exception of Michelangelo, the most romanticized artist of the Italian Renaissance. Botticelli studied painting under Fra Filipo Lippi. The progenitor of some of the most enduring and endearing images of the age-- Primavera and Birth of Venus-- Botticelli and his works have always been inextricably tied to the Florence of Lorenzo the Magnificent. To the modern mind he is one of the most human artists of a humane age. Already by the time of his death, his fame had begun to wane, and his style had begun to seem old-fashioned and prosaic compared with the grand manners of Michelangelo and Raphael. It was not until the late 19th Century, with its reawakened interest in late quattrocento Florentine history and art, that Botticelli resumed his position as one of the most admired and beloved artists of the Renaissance. Walter Pater put it, "He is before all things a poetical painter, blending the charm of story and sentiment, the medium of the art of poetry, with the charm of line and colour, the medium of abstract painting."
