  • While Botticelli was much revered in his own time, after his death his reputation all but diminished. I wasn't until the 19th Century that a rediscovery of his work began, largely prompted by the Pre-Raphaelites. Rosetti was at the helm of the Botticelli craze.

  • Excellent painting Daniel -- Can you post something about its background?
