In Amuze Art Lecture #13, we discuss one of the most famous paintings in the world: La Primavera by Sandro Botticelli in the Uffizi Museum. The painting contains over 500 individual flowers and between 170 and 200 different varieties. But more prominent are the nine mythological figures in the foreground, each of whom is discussed in our lecture.
The painting has intrigued people over the centuries as the meaning of this allegorical work is not very clear. The painting combines different mythological stories, and, therefore, there is no simple explanation for its content. But that also makes it fun, as we can each interpret it in our own way, a bit like Modern Art.
La Primavera is also part of the Highlights Tour of the Uffizi Museum available in the Amuze app (Android and iOS). If you are interested in more two-minute art lectures, one of the following ones may interest you:
