The Victoria & Albert Museum is currently host to an original exhibition on Italian painter Sandro Botticelli (1445–1510), set to run until 3 July 2016. Considered one of the greatest artists of all time, Botticelli achieved genuine success in his lifetime before dying in anonymity and being rediscovered in the 19th century.
The “Botticelli Reimagined” exhibition comprises 50 original works by Botticelli. It also reveals the extent to which the Florentine master influenced painting, photography, fashion, cinema and sculpture.
Among the exhibits is this Elsa Schiaparelli dress from the Autumn 1938 “Pagan” collection with floral garland embroidery by Lesage. This evening dress was inspired by the famous Botticelli painting Pallas and the Centaur.
