Reproductions Sep 25, 2005
Good reproductions, enjoy looking at the book, although I haven't done much reading in it yet...I admit to ordering it for the reproductions! I wish color reproductions of the "Birth of Venus" and a couple of other works were included.
the catalogue of the most recent Botticelli exhibition Apr 5, 2004
This is the catalogue of the most recent Botticelli exhibition in Paris and Florence. It comprises 6 essays by important Renaissance scholars and individual description of the works of art present in the exhibition. The reader is offered, therefore, a comprehensive and useful survey of Botticelli scholarship, sometimes with somewhat contrasting points of view. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in broadening their knowledge and understanding of Botticelli. I don't think, however, that it is a good introductory book to the artist, as it leaves out quite a lot of important works of art that were not present in the exhibition ("Primavera", "The Birth of Venus", "Mars and Venus", etc).
