Detail of Venus, by Botticelli.

One of the great names of the Italian Renaissance, Sandro Botticelli (1445–1510) will be the subject of a major exhibition at the Casa Fiat de Cultura, which marks the celebration of the 14th anniversary of the Minas Gerais space.

titled Botticelli and his Time, the show is curated by the Italian historian Alessandro Cecchi and will bring together works from different periods of the artist's production. Also including works by other central names in the art of the period – such as Antonio del Pollaiolo, Andrea del Verrocchio and Filippo Lippi –, the exhibition aims to present some of the cultural effervescence of Renaissance Florence.

Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, birth name of Sandro Botticelli, is the author of famous works such as The born of Venus, The Temptation of Christ e The Adoration of the Magi, many of them of a religious or mythical nature. He devoted much of his career to the great Florentine families, especially the Medici, for whom he painted several portraits. The exhibition in Belo Horizonte can be seen between May 5 and July 12, 2020.
