Born in Florence, Italy (1445) - Sandro Botticelli was an amazingly gifted painter of the Early Renaissance. At the age of 17 he was an apprentice to Fillippo Lippo, who was one of the top Florentine painters of the day.

Throughout the 1470s - Botticelli's notable confidence (as an independent artist) flourished significantly. And his skilled mastery and wide reputation for producing impressive work grew by leaps and bounds.

This glossy volume of over 100 full-colour reproductions (and informative biographical text) covers all of the stages of Botticelli's distinguished career as a painter - From his fantastic mythological paintings, to his best Madonnas, to his many portraits, as well.

*Note* - In 1510 - Sandro Botticelli (64 at the time) died as a direct result of his deteriorating state of health.
