Abstract:

Botticelli's allegorical masterpiece, painted in Florence probably in the 1480s, was one of the first large secular works since Greek and Roman times, and featured the first sensual female figures of the Renaissance in a city awash with pious Christian images. Why did Botticelli, whose previous art was confined to conventional Christian images and portraits of the wealthy and powerful, paint the ground-breaking La Primavera? This program explains how, in the Seventies, a painting, fixed above an ornamental day-bed, cited in a centuries-old inventory from a Medici house, was recognized as being La Primavera, shedding new light on its creation.
