"Botticelli was one of the most coveted and talented artists of the Florentine Renaissance.

In 2000, for the first time, all 92 sheets of the cycle were exhibited. As a result, the filmmaker, McPherson, decided to turn this epochal masterpiece into the subject of a portrait.

Botticelli : il pittore della grazia( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sandro Filipepi, detto il Botticelli, nacque a Firenze nel 1445 e fu uno dei più grandi maestri del Rinascimento. La sua formazione avvenne nella bottega di Filippo Lippi e nel 1467 divenne allievo del Verrocchio. Dai due maestri ereditò da un lato i delicati colori e le linee dolci, dall'altro la plasticità delle figure. I suoi mecenati più importanti furono i Medici, la potente famiglia che governava Firenze, per i quali iniziò a lavorare dal 1475 realizzando le sue due opere più famose, La nascita di Venere e La Primavera. La sua fama varcò i confini della città quando nel 1481 venne chiamato a Roma da Papa Sisto IV per collaborare alla decorazione della Cappella Sistina. Il DVD contiene due sezioni: la prima offre un quadro della vita e delle opere immortali del pittore della grazia e della bellezza, la cui evoluzione artistica, così legata alla situazione politica e religiosa fiorentina, segnò il passaggio drammatico dal periodo aureo dell'Umanesimo alle inquietudini del nuovo secolo. La seconda sezione presenta per la prima volta l'eccezionale serie dei meravigliosi disegni realizzati dal maestro tra il 1480 e il 1495 per illustrare la Divina Commedia, scritta 200 anni prima da Dante Alighieri. Gli splendidi disegni di Botticelli raccontano il fantastico viaggio di Dante nell'aldilà con estrema maestria, come sequenze di un film scritto oltre cinquecento anni fa
