Sandro Botticelli

Sandro Botticelli Paintings

Early Italian Renaissance, Florentine School

Botticelli is best known for his allegorical paintings of religious figures (especially Madonnas) and mythological characters. He either painted in tempera on wood panels, or did frescos, some of which are in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Near the end of his life, he came under the influence of the monk Savonarola, and destroyed many of his own works. Botticelli's style was somewhat old-fashioned for the time in which he painted, and he was overshadowed for centuries by other Florentine "names."
