Famous Works:

Botticelli's most famous painting was "Primavera." In this painting the people represent the wonderful things that happen in spring time. He placed Venus, the Goddess of Love, right in the middle of this picture and cupid is above her head. The lady in the pretty dress with flowers could be Springtime herself. The west wind flying through the air is blowing warm breezes. The other people are the nymphs and gods that help make spring such a wonderful time of the year.

Personal Thoughts:
