Botticelli by Barbara Deimling. I read this as part of my Art History Project. The paintings selected for the book were excellent in that Deimling explains what is going on in the painting and points out the changes in his painting style through time. It was just perfect for a novice student such as I. I knew nothing of Botticelli and his work. While the book is not lengthy, there is enough background of what was going on in Florence in the late 15th century and enough of Botticelli's life to make him real. This book did just what I wanted in my Art History project- it introduced me to an artist and show me enough of his work to make me want to see and learn more.

A master of intricate details and powerful portraiture, Botticelli produced some of the most recognised paintings in the world. From his exquisite depiction of the female form in the Birth of Venus to the. More information. they make the perfect gift, too!

Genius of the Early Renaissance During Sandro Botticelli's lifetime (1444/45-1510), the influence of his art scarcely reached beyond his native Florence, and following his death he was soon forgotten, to be rediscovered only in the 19th century, by the Pre-Raphaelites. Since then, Botticelli has ranked among the greatest of the Renaissance artists. In the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, paintings such as Primavera and The Birth of Venus belong to the foremost attractions for tourists and art lovers.

With the patronage of the powerful Medici family, a canon of secular and religious work, and contributions to the celebrated Sistine Chapel, Sandro Botticelli was well placed for fame. After his death, however, his work was eclipsed for some four hundred years. It wasn’t until the 19th century that the painter began to gain major art-historical recognition. Today, Botticelli is hailed as a towering figure of the Florentine Early Renaissance

Botticelli painted religious pictures, as well as mythological and allegorical subjects and portraits, usually commissioned by the Medici and the Vatican. This book explores his work.

Great color rendition. Very reasonable price came quickly

Excellent illustrations -- but best acquired for its streamlined textual overview of the artist's work, which is fairly up to date in terms of changing critical assessments. The commentator's explanations of biblical, mythological, and neoPlatonic/allegorical allusions are succinct and would serve anyone well as either a refresher course or an introduction to Botticelli's subject matter.

Insightful.

Any review of this book would have to start with the fact that this is definitely not an encyclopedic overview of the man and his art. It is a relatively short book (96 pages, about 40% of which consist of illustration) instead that examines Botticelli's contributions via his major works. Those seeking a through in-depth biography of the man and a detailed history of his entire portfolio would do well to avoid this book. The question that next follows is, how well does the book do in covering the basics, especially considering its short length? The answer is quite well. The primary reason for this the author's impressive knowledge of her subject (as a Professor at Syracuse). She is able to provide, as a result, to interject impressive historical perspective into the Botticelli's works (i.e., who commissioned them, their meaning in terms of the times, etc.).

Albeit she only covers Botticelli's major works she provides valuable information on them not only in terms of basics (i.e., who they commissioned by, materials used, etc.) but the actual meaning of them, especially in terms of their usual allegorical meaning and historical context. She also shows how Botticelli's art progressive over time in terms of technique and subject matter.

All and all a very good introduction to the artist for those who desire to get up to speed on the subject in 2 hours or so of reading.

Three elements distinguish Barbara Deimling's outstanding introductory study of Botticelli, one of the High Kings of Western culture:
1. Her account of the artist's work, with detailed analyses of Botticelli's densely allegorical paintings (not just in his world-renowned mythological scenes 'Primavera' and 'Birth of Venus', but his more numerous religious works also); the influence on him of literature, from classical poetry to the Bible and theology to Dante (some of the famous sketches for whose 'Divine Comedy' are included here); and the development of his celebrated style, from the sumptouosness of his mid-period, with its graceful, idealised human figures and concern with architectural perspective, to the austere late works, marking a rejection of Renaissance 'realism', and a return to the stylisation and exagerration of the Gothic period, and a new emotional charge, particularly in some harrowing crucifixion and lamentation scenes.
2. The use of Botticelli as a model for the teaching of art history. Deimling is not content to treat Botticelli as a lone genius who transcended his time, and concentrating solely on his pictures' form and content. By placing Botticelli firmly in the historical realities of 15th century Florence (its economic worldliness giving onto religious hysteria and acopalyptic moods near its end), Deimling shows that every one of his paintings bears the imprint, not only of the period's aesthetic innovations, but of the patrons who commissioned him. Aesthetic choices - such as the use of gold-leaf paint - is decided not by inner imperative, but the desire of a patron to show off his wealth and status, or a merchants' guild to advertise their wares. Colours, motifs, even figures in the paintings, represent the important figures of the day, and the symbolism of their professions and families. The surprise is not that Botticelli was a unique genius, but that he managed to create works inspiring spiritual awe in such a mundane, compromised context.
3. The usual high Taschen quality of plates, admirably reproducing Botticelli's colours, especially the glowing reds that streak his work. Many Botticelli paintings are too big and long to be adequately reproduced, but there is an intelligent use of details to give the reader some idea of his art. If I have one complaint, it is the downplaying of Botticelli's humour and eroticism, but what do you want in 96 pages?

This is a thin volume that can be finished within hours. Comments on the quality of the works, the underlying allegorical meanings, the historical background, and the artistic context are all discussed very nicely. Reproductions are abundant and details are adequately highlighted. No prerequisite knowledge required.
Excellent art book.
