Transcript of Sandro Botticelli
Hi. My name is Jarrod. I'm an Assistant Professor of English at Dongguk University in Seoul.
I want to tell you about Sandro Botticelli, because I personally love to look at his paintings. I love the simplicity and the clarity of his compositions as well as his use of colour and light.
I believe Sandro Botticelli's paintings are some of the most beautiful every created.
Today I'll give you a summary of Sandro Botticelli's life and personality; I'll show you some of his greatest paintings; and tell you about why his work is so famous today.
Botticelli was born in Florence in 1445. He was apprenticed at 14 years of age and when he was 25 he opened his own workshop. He never married or had children and died at the age of 64 or 65 in 1510.
Botticelli created some of the most famous and recognisable paintings of the Italian Rennaisance period including "The Birth of Venus" and "Primavera".
Botticelli was forgotten for centuries after his death but was rediscovered in the 19th century. His work is now recognised throughout the world.
Now, you've heard all about Sandro Botticelli and his life; you've seen his magnificent paintings; and you've learnt how iconic his paintings are.
Why don't you look him up? Get on the internet and have a look at some of his paintings - or even better, fly to Italy or London and see some of his paintings in person! You won't regret it.
