"Barrel", not necessarily a charming nickname, and yet almost every art connoisseur knows it by this name. We're talking about the Italian painter Alessandro di Mariano Filipepi, who celebrated his birthday on March 1, 1445. The painter is known almost exclusively as Sandro Botticelli. Botticelli is one of the most important Italian painters and draftsmen of the early Renaissance. The Italian did not come from a family of artists. His father was a tanner in the Ognissanti working-class district of Florence.

Sandro Botticelli was not particularly hardworking at school. For this reason, his father decided to send him to his brother Antonio in the teachers of the goldsmith. Following this training, he joined another apprenticeship with Filippo Lippi in Prato, where he painted the choir of the Cathedral of Prato. Further studies with well-known Florentine painters such as Antonio Pollaiuolo Andrea del Verrocchio probably followed. In the Verrocchio workshop, he could have met Leonardo da Vinci, who also works there. Sandro Botticelli opened his own workshop at the age of 25 and was commissioned to paint a picture of bravery by Tommaso Soderini in the same year. With this work the series of virtues was completed, which was made for the court in the Palazzo die Mercanti. Thanks to the contact with the Medici and above all through the support of Lorenzi de Medici, the painter enjoyed political protection and numerous public contracts over the following 20 years. Slender female bodies, pale, moody faces, which are framed by magnificent golden hair, are typical of Botticelli. His work "The Birth of Venus" represents the first almost life-size nude since antiquity. Sandro Botticelli stayed in Rome for a year between 1481 and 1482 after he was called by Pope Sixtus IV. In collaboration with other Italian artists, he worked on large murals in the newly built Sistine Chapel. These murals show events from the life of Jesus and Moses as well as some portraits of earlier popes.

The last paintings by the Italian painter include “The Lamentation of Christ” and the “Mystical Birth of Christ”. The latter is the only painting by Botticelli that has been signed and dated. It dates from 1501. In the following years Botticelli stopped painting, it is believed that he was no longer able to paint because of a disability. However, his workshop continued to work. Nonetheless, in 1504 he was a member of a committee of esteemed artists who decided on the location of Michelangelo's marble statue of David. Documents describe that the artist had been an impoverished man in old age. On May 17, 1510, Sandro Botticelli was laid to rest in the cemetery of the Ognissanti church. He was buried in every Florentine quarter where he spent most of his life. © Meisterdrucke
