Being Botticelli's Women
The women created by Sandro Botticelli live in environments in which many women would dream to reside. They are goddesses enthroned in laurel. They are nymphs dancing in orange groves perfumed by ripe fruit and the same tree’s fresh blossoms. Botticelli’s women are warriors, protectors, seducers, lovers and saints. They are soft, new and supple. They are erudite, elegant and mature.
