Sandro Botticelli was an Early Renaissance artist based in Florence, Italy. His work was popular in its time and then fell off in popularity near his death. It only was "rediscovered" in the 19th century and has been enormously popular and collected since then. His two most popular paintings are "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera". The model for both paintings was Simonetta, the most beautiful woman in Florence. She died at 22 but Botticelli just continued painting her. It is hard to find a woman in his paintings who does not resemble Simonetta. Although Botticelli painted many religious figures, he was unusual in being able to paint the pagan mythological Gods as well without the Catholic Church declaring him a heretic.
