Discover the work of one of the world’s most celebrated painters and his influence over later artists in the Botticelli Reimagined exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510), though admired during his own lifetime, was generally ignored after his death by both the art world and the general public. It wasn’t until the 19th century, when his work was rediscovered and reappraised, that he cemented his place as one of the most influential painters in the world.
Created in partnership with Gemäldegalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, the exhibition showcases more than 50 of Botticelli’s original works. These are displayed alongside more recent masterpieces from the worlds of art, design, fashion, film and photography inspired by the Florentine artist, including works by the likes of Andy Warhol, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, René Magritte and Elsa Schiaparelli.
