Sandro Botticelli – The Birth of Venus – 1485-1486 Oil on Canvas JUL 22, 2023 RELEASE DATE


The Birth of Venus is an early renaissance oil on canvas painting by the Italian artist Sandro Botticelli, executed during the mid-1480s. It depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully grown (called Venus Anadyomene and often expressed in art). The painting is in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. 

As a depiction of a subject from classical mythology on a vast scale, The Birth of Venus was virtually unprecedented in Western art since classical antiquity, as was the size and prominence of a nude female figure in the Birth. It was thought that it was commissioned by the same member of the Medici family.
