"Window on nature" - this is a common theoretical assumption of Florentine painters of the era of quattrocento era, when the goal of artists is not to create original works, but real beautiful things.The epoch does not yet know the concept of painting as a personal statement of the artist. Nevertheless, at this time many painters bring an individual imprint of their own style.
One of the most outstanding personalities of the early Renaissance era, and one of the few creators, so quickly recognizable today, is Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510).
His poetic and fairytale works, with the echo of Gothic aesthetics, still arouse admiration.
Botticelli with a tendency to ornamentation, where the line in his painting is the most appropriate means of expression, a bright color, exquisite calligraphy, maybe tit can overwhelm today's recipient accustomed to a sparing aesthetic form.
The use of an intriguing fragment of the picture, the frame, can be a perfect decorative element and, at the same time, a tribute to the artist.Botticelli's painting perfectly harmonizes and brings movement to contemporary ascetic interiors.
