Always loved this painting
When I saw it at the Uffizi, I had the chills all over me!!! Magic!
Cencio,. I am sorry for you queued for 3 hours. It must be in summer. I was lucky, I did not have to queue as I went in from the back door, it was summer. Did you go to the sculpture room?? Boticceli's works are all time famous since his time in Florence. Paint women portrait in Mythologicaly theme. Many artists painted Venus and did the sculptures but he had his wonderful idea. The creation of his works are amazing. I agree with you all.
perfect combination of anatomy & mythology
botticelli had the most beatiful models.from the greatest artists all over the times

This is awesome piece of work.
I saw this at the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square, the style it's painted in is so intricate and beautiful, especially for it's size

In The Beginning of My Life I was disowned, rejected, disconnected from Love, but not pleasure. I knew how to get out of this Reality, this physical plane or Dimension. I would become creative with material within my reach. Assemble utility items that I could sell, trade or barter. At school I had access to tools that could help with any task or project. I started with lamps that I fashioned into miniature fireplaces, with logs that had a red light accent like flames. They were built out of used plywood, elmers glue, a few nails, and agate stones that I tumbled and polished. They had a small teak mantle inserted and a metal grate formed in welding 101. After a dozen sales at $20 each I moved up to coffee tables. I made a few dozen for $50 to $100 and moved up to Chairs & Rockers. I had an idea to copy a long back spindle chair similar to ones I had seen in a Frank Loyd Wright Building in Racine, Wisconsin. I made 8 chairs in 1 month and then acquired a job at General Electric.
I was in the 11th Grade and proficient as a Craftsman. I Enlisted in the U.S. Army and never returned to that kind of creation. I was A.W.O.L. In Europe and supported myself with Chalk Drawings of Madonna & Child outside of Cathedrals, with a brass bowl, in the bottom corner, to accept tribute, that church goers gave admirably. I can Hustle, Sell, Barter, or Trade any thing to anyone, except my Art. I deliberately blow the deal and resent frugal Patrons, resulting in a loss of friendship, and gaining a poor reputation. I think its age related. When I was young everyone was friendly and very physical with me. Older women always supported me even when their cuckolded husbands objected. Now, I'm older and untouchable. I don't even get hugs. I might create images that nobody understands, even myself.......you know......undecipherable. ALOHA
All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.
