Botticelli's, Birth of Venus , was originally painted in 1486 inspired by the text in a Homeric hymn published in Florence in 1488 by the Greek refugee Demetrios Chalcondyles, "Of august gold-wreathed and beautiful Aphrodite I shall sing to whose domain belong the battlements of all sea-loved Cyprus where, blown by the moist breath of Zephyros, she was carried over the waves of the resounding sea on soft foam. The gold-filleted Horae happily welcomed her and clothed her with heavenly raiment". Today it has been recreated in vibrant color and detail by hand using rich oils on canvas. Venus is an Italian Renaissance ideal: Blonde, pale-skinned, voluptuous. Botticelli has emphasized the femininity of her body (long neck, curvaceous figure). The brilliant light and soothing colors, the luxurious garden, the gorgeous draperies of the nymph, and the roses floating around the beautiful nude all suggest that the painting is meant to bring pleasure to the viewer. Make this painting a fanciful focal point in any room for family and guests to admire.
