About La Primavera

This reproduction is based on Botticelli’s painting, Primavera or Spring (1482), and is one of the earliest classical allegories of the Renaissance. Following in the neoplatonic tradition, Botticelli’s symbolic narrative reveals his humanistic intentions. In an orange grove, Cupid, Zephyr, Chloris and Flora, the three graces, Venus, and Mercury act in visual poetry.

This artwork is now on view in the Madden Museum (University of Denver) Vault Room.
