"The Birth of Venus"

Sandro Botticelli - Tempera - 173 x 279 cm - 1486 - (Uffizi Gallery (Florence, Italy))

The Birth of Venus (Italian: Nascita di Venere) is a 1486 painting by Sandro Botticelli. Botticelli was commissioned to paint the work by the Medici family of Florence, specifically Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de' Medici under the influence of his cousin Lorenzo de' Medici, close friend to Botticelli . It depicts the goddess Venus, having emerged from the sea as a fully grown woman, arriving at the sea-shore (which is related to the Venus Anadyomene motif).The painting is on display at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
The goddess Venus, having emerged from the sea as a full-grown woman, arriving at the seashore. Botticelli has picked out highlights in her hair with gold leaf and has emphasized the femininity of her body. The brilliant light and soothing colors, the luxurious garden, the gorgeous draperies of the nymph, and the roses floating around the beautiful nude. Venus' body is anatomically improbable, with elongated neck and torso. She stands in a classical contrapposto stance but her weight is shifted too far over the left leg for the pose to be held.
