Sandro Botticelli was an Italian painter of the early Renaissance. Botticelli's later work showed a diminution of scale, expressively distorted figures, and an unnatural use of color. After his death in 1510, his reputation was eclipsed longer than that of any other major European artist. His paintings remained in the churches and villas for which they had been created, his frescoes in the Sistine Chapel overlooked with a preference for Michelangelo.
Botticelli was a member of what has come to be known as the Florentine School. This group of 14th and 15th century painters included legendary names of the Renaissance like Donatello, Michelangelo, Fra Angelico, and Brunelleschi. His work came to be viewed, in the centuries after his death, as a major part of what legendary foundational art historian Giorgio Vasari called a “golden age”. While wildly popular during his lifetime, his work fell out of favor for quite some time after his death. His talent was recognized at an early age and fostered in an apprenticeship, before living and working under the patronage of the historic Medici family. His Madonnas, “Adoration of the Kings”, and “Birth of Venus” remain immensely popular and significant to this day.
I love art, but I'm not a millionairess. I'm so happy I discovered a merchant who is able to fulfill my need for beautiful works of art adorning my walls at a price that is truly affordable w/o conflicting with quality - this is not a wallboard type of art - I generally purchase the upscale renditions, framed and they have enough texture and beauty to enhance any home.
An incredible addition to my piano room. The colors are true to life and the canvas is good quality. Very satisfied with the quality and workmanship in the frame and hanging hardware as well.
I have ordered 3 paintings now for overstockArt and they are all gorgeous. They arrive very quickly and are carefully packaged. I recommend them wholeheartedly!
I bought 3 pieces so far and love them all. The paintings as well as the framing are very nice. The delivery is great too.
I have always admired van Gogh's work, but prints look pretty cheesy. Now they have brush strokes going along with his, which look very real with their raised texture. I love this art and recommend it to anyone who loves movement and vibrant colors in their art.
Purchasing this reproduction of is about as close to owning the original as one can get. The artist who did my picture was not skimpy on the bright dabs of paint - exactly in the style of the master, Vincent. The colors are magnificent. The structure follows closely the original I have in my art books. I originally bought it for my living room but after a day I moved it to my bedroom so I could start each day with something beautiful.
Beautiful van Gogh wall ceramics. Fast delivery with fragile products safely delivered due to expert packing.
I have been scammed before by other retailers which were trying to sell some horrendous version of the masters, but overstockArt just put ordering online into the next level. Honest and wonderful!
The moment I opened the package I was pleased to find that the colors of the canvas exactly matched the image on the website. No disappointments here. I was also impressed by the care with which the canvas was packed for delivery. It was obvious that every possible effort was taken to insure the safe transit and delivery of the item, which, by the way, arrived within the scheduled time. Based on product quality and shipping, I give them 5 stars!
overstockArt delivered on everything! Fast and very good service and a wide selection of art. Very happy with my art and frame. The symbolism and beauty of the art really spoke to me. Definitely recommend overstockArt.
