Primavera, (Spring), 1478, is one of the most famous of Botticelli's paintings but you must know Birth of Venus, 1485, that has many reproductions and has been used by some artists as a source of parody or inspiration.
The beauty of both is what first catch the attention. But there is more.
I found Madame Pickwick Art's Blog where there is a very good article about this painting and
you can refer yourself to it to watch details and learn a little more about this painting or just enjoy what you see. Paintings depicting human body can be appreciated even without knowing theirs historical and the iconographical aspects.
As I said some posts ago I'm still having some back problems and must stay away from the computer.
It's being hard to fix attention.
Hope you like Botticelli.
