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.
Subtle yet very beautiful painting with great attention to detail. A fine reproduction that lightens up the room. The colors are soft and have a soothing effect on the mind. Strongly recommended.
A vibrant colorful hand painted oil on canvas that has changed the mood in the room. The red and orange poppies against the background of a dark sky is mesmerizing and magical. Very good reproduction. Strongly Recommended.
I ordered this in a large size for my living room as I had seen it years ago and always liked the scene and the colors. I didn't know if the painting would be what I remembered but it was better than I expected. The colors are beautiful and the painting so well done. Some thought I had purchased a real Monet, but that isn't in my budget. This one was and I am very happy with my purchase.
Absolutely love this tile! The colours are so vibrant and pop off the tile. Looks great on the wall.
We were so impressed with our first purchase we bought a second painting the next day. Not only was the painting outstanding, the frame was super as well!
I just pulled my new painting out of the box (which arrived incredibly quick) and I am absolutely in love! It is so beautiful, and detailed - so much better than I was expecting. The frame is good quality and it was assembled well - this is definitely a piece I will have the rest of my life. All in all, I am overjoyed with it! I will definitely be a returning customer!
Smooth transaction, excellent price/sale, flawless and quick shipping, and most of all, product just as advertised. By the way, frame is a beautiful match. Would shop again!
No worries here, nothing but good things to say about OverstockArt.com. They were responsive and accommodating [...] Great quality oil paintings at reasonable prices that have brightened my home. I just ordered several more paintings and I have another in mind. Their superior service and product quality will keep me coming back.
Arrived quickly, beautiful painting, beautiful frame, I am so impressed by this website. I will be ordering again shortly and recommending to all my friends! Honestly, did not expect to be so satisfied.
We just received our painting and the quality is far superior to any reproductions we have seen from European suppliers.
