Hello, darlings! - Here's yet another great book of first-rate reproductions showcasing the magnificent masterpieces of this truly gifted Renaissance painter whose artwork is some of the most recognizable in the world.

Born in Florence, Italy (1445) - Sandro Botticelli was an amazingly gifted painter of the Early Renaissance. At the age of 17 he was an apprentice to Fillippo Lippo, who was one of the top Florentine painters of the day.

Throughout the 1470s - Botticelli's notable confidence (as an independent artist) flourished significantly. And his skilled mastery and wide reputation for producing impressive work grew by leaps and bounds.

This glossy volume of full-colour reproductions (and informative biographical text) covers all of the stages of Botticelli's distinguished career as a painter - From his fantastic mythological paintings, to his best Madonnas, to his many portraits, as well.

*Note* - In 1510 - Sandro Botticelli (64 at the time) died as a direct result of his rapidly deteriorating state of health.
