Largest Botticelli Showcase at Victoria and Albert Museum Open Until July

Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is recognised as one of the greatest artists of all time. His celebrated images are firmly embedded in the public consciousness, and his influence permeates art, design, fashion and film. Although lauded in his lifetime, Botticelli was largely forgotten for more than 300 years until his work was progressively rediscovered in the 19th century. Telling a story 500 years in the making, Botticelli Reimagined will be the largest Botticelli exhibition in Britain since 1930. Including painting, fashion, film, drawing, photography, tapestry, sculpture and print, the exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum explores the ways that artists and designers have reinterpreted Botticelli.
