Classic 1000 piece puzzle
Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510), author of one of the most famous works in history, The Birth of Venus, was a major painter of the Florentine Renaissance and the protégé of the Medici family. His aesthetic quest, translated into the creation of an ideal female type, is marked by the influence of Neoplatonism and Humanism. He is imbued with classical culture, but also, like many Italian painters, he is sensitive to Flemish painting. Botticelli was involved in some of the greatest decorative projects of his time, particularly that of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
"The Birth of Venus"
This work, one of the most famous in the world, represents Venus, goddess of beauty, allegory of universal fertility, born from the waves of the sea (Venus called anadyomene). Aerial, the young woman is standing in a shell, on which she hardly seems to be resting. She is also a modest Venus, masking her sex behind her long hair animated by the wind (symbolized by Zephyr, on the left). Her posture, in contrapposto, recalls ancient sculpture. It would seem that the model was the mistress of Julien de Medici, who commissioned the work. As usual in works of Neoplatonic inspiration, the painter, in a system of double reading, confronts several levels of reality, ideal and natural.
