Sandro Botticeli, better known by his name Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (1445 - 17 May 1510), was a famous Italian painter of the early Renaissance. He studied at the Florentine School under the patronage of Lorenzo de Medici. Less than a century later, Giorgio Vasari created a style of art that he would describe as the "golden age" of Botticelli's Vita. Bottican drew on mythological and religious subjects.
One of the most famous paintings in the world today is painted by him: The Birth of Venus and Primavera at the Uffizi in Florence.
Sandro Botticelli has spent his entire life in the same district of Florence, and his most important time outside is in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, Rome. He worked here for months, the Sistine Chapel is a small church with famous works by Michelangelo on its walls. Botticelli is now a master artist in the 1470s, the 1480s is the period when his greatest mythological paintings and best Madonnas were drawn. In the 1490s his style changed, creating paintings in the style of high Renaissance works. Botticelli has been described as "an outsider in the mainstream of Italian painting".
Botticelli Sistine Chapel Period
In 1481, Pope Sixtus IV summoned Botticelli and other famous Florentine artists to decorate the walls of the newly completed Sistine Chapel. This grand project was to become the main decoration of the chapel. Many of the frescoes are still preserved today, but many have been submerged or deteriorated by Michelangelo's work in the later period.
