Botticelli Prints

Article by Tom Gurney

 

Sandro Botticelli prints offer some of the finest art to have come from Italy during it’s prolific period of the 15th century during the renaissance of western art. Botticelli ranks alongside other famous Italian painters of that time as masters within European art, with the developments of Italian Renaissance painters later spreading across to the Netherlands, Spain, France and the UK.

The Birth of Venus is generally accepted the finest work from across the whole career of Sandro Botticelli and shows the goddess Venus as she rises from the sea.

That exceptional oil painting at 172.5 cm × 278.5 cm (67.9 in × 109.6 in) is a momentous piece that spearheads the artist’s claim to being a master of Renaissance art.

Famous Botticelli paintings and prints from his long career included Venus, Venus and Mars, Venus Detail, The Temptation of Christ, The Punishment of Korah, Scenes from the Life of Moses, Primavera, Adoration Of The Magi, Madonna And Child And Two Angels, Madonna And Child With Six Saints, Mystic Nativity, The Virgin And Child With Two Angels, Botticelli Sixtus II, Madonna And Child, Portrait of a Young Man, Pallas and the Centaur, Madonna Cestello, Guliano de MediciSimonetta, Calumny, Fortitude, Discovery of Murder Holophernes, Nastagio First, Nastagio Second, Nastagio Third, Nastagio Fourth, Madonna with the Book, Virgin with the Child and Five Angels, Simonetta, Madonna Cestello, Madonna with the book, Nostagio, The Temptation of Christ, The Punishment of Korah, Scenes from the Life of Moses, The Virgin with the child and five angels, Primavera and Adoration Of The Magi.

The style of Botticelli with his kind depictions of his subjects and stylish finishes makes his original paintings very popular as art print reproductions even today, some 500 years later. The most frequent forms of reproductions for the artist’s originals are framed fine art prints and giclee prints which offer the best accuracy to the original as well as giving a professional finish.

Conclusively, Botticelli prints are an excellent option for those looking to buy traditional art for their own home, but wanting a style which is colourful and more interesting than some other paintings to have come from the renaissance period which now appear relatively plain.
