The Unquestionably Divine Sandro Botticelli Died This Day 507 Years Ago — On May 17, 1510.
A good overview IF you are not that familiar with him.
Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, Titian, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael.
His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?
What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.
Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
