Love Venus? Check Out The Botticelli Primavera Fashions At Alice & Olivia
ALICE & OLIVIA VENUS SWEATER
Love the new collection at Alice and Olivia featuring Botticelli’s “La Primavera” painting, which puts Venus centre stage!
This mythological, Renaissance scene is Botticelli’s oldest representation of Venus (you’ll know his “Birth Of Venus” painting, of course!), seen beneath Cupid in this renowned allegory of Spring, “La Primavera”.
To her right are the Three Graces – Aglaea (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer).
In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae, the “Graces”, goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility, together known as the Charites.
To her right stands Flora and Chloris, while Mercury is (out of sight) further to the left.
What do you think astro lovers?
I will TOTALLY be visiting the Botticelli Rooms at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence! later this summer!
