This Botticelli Venus harks back to the famous Birth of Venus at the Uffizi in Florence. Even before Botticelli’s death the "Birth of Venus" had achieved such prominent status that the principal character was taken out of the group and rendered on its own as a separate picture. Many Florentine palazzi in the Renaissance featured similar Venus images. Botticelli’s figure was to become one of the most celebrated motifs in the history of art. New interpretations of his Venus continue to appear today.
