How the painting of Sandro Botticelli La Primavera reflects the Renaissance?

How does the Spring reflect the themes, topics, or techniques that are characteristic of the Renaissance. Thank you for responding

Hello! Although it was one of the most individual painters of the Italian Renaissance, Sandro Botticelli remained little known for centuries after his death. Then, his work, some of the early Renaissance, was rediscovered in the 19th century by a group of artists England is known as the Pre-Raphaelites. Since then, his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting, the golden age. The most his paintings are original Greek and Roman illustrating. The best known are the two large panels Primavera and The Birth of Venus, the best known works of Florentine art. http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/botticelli/ http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki / Sandro_Botticelli These paintings are mythologies, not the kind of whimsical Ovid, but suggested, those who embody the moral and metaphysical Neoplatonic ideas that were fashionable in the circles of the Medici. Pure visual poetry, which are the quintessence of his style of Botticelli: there is a deliberate denial of rational construction of the territory and any attempt to model solid-looking figures, instead of the figures float in the frontal plane of the image in a decorative landscape and the way defined by the plan, is voluntarily changed to impregnate describing expressive. http://www.artchive.com/artchive/B/botticelli.

Simonetta Vespucci and Sandro Botticelli depend upon one another for their fame in many respects.

Similarly if not for Simonetta Botticelli would likely have been a lesser known artist of the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Simonetta married a lesser…
