Titled 'La Femme,' the Neoclassical Pop Art artwork inspired by Sandro Botticelli's landmark painting, "The Birth of Venus," created in 1480, currently located at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
Sandro Botticelli, 1445-1510, was one of the most significent Florentine Painters. The Birth of Venus is regarded as a milestone and perhaps the most appreciated mainstream Italian show-stopper masterpiece that defines the pith of the 15th century Italian Renaissance.
Inspired by Greek myth in which Kronos servers Uranus’s genitals and throws them into the sea. In return, Venus, the Goddess of Love and beauty, rises as a fully formed mature woman from the foam of a cresting wave and is carried on a shell drifting to shore in Cyprus.
Adding to the myth, Botticelli portrays Venus blown to the shore by the mythological Greek gods of the winds.
The portrait of Venus is related to the model Simonetta Vespucci, who pondered a figure of feminine beauty all through Florence.
Botticelli's attention to the feminine beauty, style, erotic appeal, and divine glam, highlighted by the illustration of Venus' hairstyle, inspired generations of Pop Culture artists amongst Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce.
Botticelli promotes Venus as an icon of love, a wellspring for spiritual development and inner beauty, an idea derived from Plato's philosophy, contending that the contemplation on the object of beauty triggers the brain's subconscious and conscious activity to more easily attain a meditative state of harmony and love.
The erotic artwork, initially commissioned by the Medici Family, a major patron of Botticelli, was loomed over the family marital bed, a daring act for that time that still makes it a perfect wall art to finish your bedroom interior design however, Venus bring her blessings of love to any space.
