I learned so much from this talk and Alessandra presents so well. I can’t wait to rewatch it
Volume 2 was as wonderful as Volume 1!
Alessandra Becucci did a wonderful job of expanding on artists and paintings I would have said were familiar. I now know I knew little!
She picked out the best of the best and gave a wonderful context for each
This session was focused intensely on the life, works, and importance of the early Renaissance painter, Botticelli. It covered how he became linked to the Medicis (patrons) and his evolution as a painter. His early works were included but the "in depth" part of the session's title was interpretation of the main works in the Uffizi, Primavera and Birth of Venus. These were very informative and complemented what I learned in others' educational sessions recently -- so reinforced my learning. Interspersed were mentionings of other masterpieces to add to the contributions of Botticelli to Renaissance art. Perhaps the title could include that the main in-depth focus of this particular session (designated as Volume 2) is regarding Botticelli so one doesn't think it covers other artists. (It is acknowledged that the description does state this but one may not know unless reading that before booking.)
