About The Birth of Venus
This masterpiece by Italian artist Sandro Botticelli depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown.

Although the pose of Venus is classical in some respects, the overall treatment of the figure, standing off-center with a curved body of long flowing lines, is, in many respects, from Gothic art. She appears to be floating, not standing.

The painting resides at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

About Sandro Botticelli
Sandro Botticelli (born 1445, Florence [Italy]—died May 17, 1510, Florence) was one of the greatest painters of the Florentine Renaissance. His Birth of Venus and Primavera are often said to epitomize for modern viewers the spirit of the Renaissance.

Botticelli's posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century, when he was rediscovered by the Pre-Raphaelites who stimulated a reappraisal of his work.  Since then, his paintings have been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting.
