if I ask you to think of the goddess Venus, probably one picture will come to mind...
this is Sandro Botticelli
one if the great Italian masters. thought he is mostly remembered by his mythical works, though he did few of them.
he worked on portraits but his mayor focus was religious paintings, and ran a shop for the creation of Madonnas.
