Botticelli Reimagined – Victoria and Albert Exhibition

Botticelli Reimagined – Victoria and Albert Exhibition. This innovative exhibition explores the enduring impact of the Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) from the Pre-Raphaelites to today. Although lauded in his lifetime, Botticelli was largely forgotten for more than 300 years until his work was progressively rediscovered in the 19th century.

Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is recognised as one of the greatest artists of all time. His celebrated images are firmly embedded in public consciousness and his influence permeates art, design, fashion and film.

This V&A Exhibition reveals the ways that artists and designers have reinterpreted Botticelli through painting, fashion, film, drawing, photography, tapestry, sculpture and print. It includes over 50 original works by Botticelli, alongside works by artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, René Magritte, Elsa Schiaparelli, Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman.

The show is a procession from darkness to light. The first galleries are all black walls and shiny black floors like a mid-’80s Sloane Street boutique.
