Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, better known as Sandro Botticelli (1 March 1444/45 – 17 May 1510) was an Italian painter of the Florentine school during the Early Renaissance.


His posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century; since then his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting, and 'The Birth of Venus' and 'Primavera' rank now among the most familiar masterpieces of Florentine art.
