From the Galleria degli Uffizi: Print reproducing the famous work of the Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli on a reduced scale. Together with Polistampa Firenze, we have worked on the production of a series of limited edition prints using high-level techniques and papers.
The famous painting, completed in 1485, is the very symbol of painting in Florence. Its creation was influenced by the Neoplatonic philosophy so dear to Laurentian Florence. Venus, in the heart of the work, is depicted in the pose of Venus Pudica, as she attempts to cover herself. According to some, with Zephyrus and Aura on the left urging the goddess on with their breath, and one of the Hours on the right hand handing her a richly embroidered cloak, the scene draws inspiration from one of the Stanze by Agnolo Poliziano: Botticelli’s friend and another protégé of Lorenzo the Magnificent. The original work is housed in the Galleria degli Uffizi.
