The life of a master
Sandro Botticelli was actually born as Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi in 1445 in Florence, Italy. In 1460, he began training with Fra Filippo Lippi, one of the greatest painters of the Renaissance. Botticelli's first works placed great importance on the human figure, where the people are shown as melancholy and thoughtful. These qualities are most evident in his best-known works, Spring and the Birth of Venus, which you can see in the Sandro Botticelli framed print named aptly Sandro Botticelli - Birth of Venus. This particular piece was executed for the estate of a cousin of Lorenzo the Magnificent, Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de' Medici, who was his biggest fan and an important patron of the arts during the Renaissance.
