Print reproducing the famous work of the Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli on a reduced scale. Together with Polistampa Firenze, we have worked on the production of a series of limited edition prints using high-level techniques and papers.
Considered one of the greatest expressions of art in the world, Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera (Spring) conceals profoundly allegorical meanings behind its beauty. The artist was perhaps inspired by a Stanza by Agnolo Poliziano, a poet from the close circle of Lorenzo the Magnificent, where a garden in bloom is described with the Graces and Zephyrus chasing Flora, the goddess of spring. In Botticelli’s version, these three characters from the myth are joined by the nymph Chloris, Mercury, Cupid and a beautiful Venus, the lady of the garden. This work also constitutes an incredibly accurate botanical almanac, with over two hundred recognised plant species depicted, still to be found flourishing in the Florentine hills.The original work is housed in the Galleria degli Uffizi.
Polistampa Firenze is the printing branch of Mauro Pagliai’s Polistampa. The company is a diversified Florentine firm with its own publishing house, a section dedicated to the staging of cultural events and management of the Niccolini Theatre. A passion for art is what distinguishes the company and the activities of Mr Pagliai, who has collaborated with many 20th-century artists in the production of photographic works, prints and drawings.
