Botticelli 1445-1510

I wanted to share with you some paintings by my favorite artist..... Sandro Botticelli. This past weekend I became lost in a book by Chiara Basta which highlights the artist and his work. Even though my heart belongs to vintage fabric and trims, glitter, sparkle, and whimsy..... these paintings really make me feel..... I am sure you will recongize some or all of them.

1. Madonna and the Pomegranate 1487 (my fav)

2. Pallas and the Centaur 1482-1483

3. Birth of Venus 1484

and Virgin and Child with the Infant Saint John 1490-1495

Thank you for coming by my blog and visiting. I love the Book with the Paintings. They are so beautiful and so inspiring. How fun to find a old Alice in Wonderland book! Love your flea market findings. I hope you come visit again. Thank you :)
