Sandro Botticelli, whose paintings are some of the most famous images in the history of European art, was a master of the Renaissance. Botticelli’s natural talent as a draughtsman shined through his works. Thanks to his graceful and flowing style, marked by sinuous, vibrant lines, Botticelli’s fame quickly spread beyond his native Florence. His contributions to Western art were largely ignored for more than three centuries before being rediscovered in the nineteenth century, inspiring new movements in European art.
