The typical expression of vivid human creative skills in the visual form is an art.  One such mode of depiction is the wonderland of painting and its forms are absolutely ample. When it comes to Indian paintings, it dates back to a very long tradition which promises wondrous works. But people had gone crazy about the amazing delineations of an Italian painter. Guess who? His works were apparently known to be golden paintings which were indeed pretty familiar besides. He was Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, better known as Sandro Botticelli(1445 – 1510).

Sandro Botticelli had done with fine, astounding million dollar paintings that made a huge revolution over that decade. He got inspired by well eminent Masaccio’s painting and it was Lippi that Botticelli had learned much intimately. The most ravishing thing was that by 1470 he had his own workshop. The most adorable paintings were ‘The Adoration of the Magi(1476)’, ‘Primavera(1478)’, ‘The Birth of Venus(1482) & ‘The Mystical Nativity(1500)’ which sounds out pretty cool. Gothic Realism was emphasized via his study of antique. It was so fascinating as in it relies upon several texts for its significance.

At the height of his fame, he was one of the most renowned artists in Italy. His mesmerizing pictures of the ‘Madonna & Child’ and his altarpieces were literally popular in his lifetime. He accomplished his paintings by combining a decorative use of line with elements of the classical tradition. This is most likely seen in the harmony of his composition and the supple contours of his figures.  The nature of his paintings demonstrate how highly regarded he was around that time. Could we think of any artist who had painted on multiple scales? It was Boticelli who can ascertain his place as one of the most beloved painters of all times.
