The Story

why we love it

The Birth of Venus and the other famous work “La Primavera” both by Sandro Botticelli are two of the best treasures of the Florentine Renaissance. 
The masterpiece has attracted a number of other explanations from a variety of scholars, historians and related experts. 
There we come to the conclusion that The Birth of Venus painting was not only a milestone for the artist himself, and at the same time it became a referential point for the upcoming generation of artists. 
Its glory became greater, especially with the development of popular culture in the 20th century, as Andy Warhol converted it to screen printing in 1984, in the 2000s Adobe Systems used the image for adobe Illustrator software, or references in James Bond movie, Lady Gaga video or Beyonce images.
For us this makes her an forever young icon.

This is just our small contribution, your curiosity can do the rest.
