Description of the painting Sandro Botticelli "Spring"


In the painting "Spring", three inextricable directions from each other found their place. These are the directions in the style of which science, philosophy and art developed. Courtly, pompous style, often in this style at that time lovers were portrayed.

The antique style in the picture is represented by motifs from the myths of ancient Greece, as well as their characters. The Christian style is represented by the image of the Madonna, who, with her hand, seems to bless everyone.

To the right is the west wind - Zephyr, who abducts the Greek nymph Chlorida, the lord of fields and flowers. On the left side you will find three graces, which by their presence personify chastity, pleasure and love in unity. Mercury, immerses the viewer in the memories of the myths of Paris, who gave the apple to the goddess. The Greeks had this goddess Aphrodite, and the Romans Venus. In the picture, she gently walks on herbs and flowers. and above the head of the goddess is a small cupid who aims at one of the graces.

Madonna is depicted with good reason. After all, she, like other goddesses, was reduced to the face of saints and for Christians she is a goddess. For the artist, she is the image of an ideal woman and a beautiful lady, whose image inspires both artists and poets.

In the picture, the artist makes it clear that different eras of art do not essentially differ from each other, they simply gradually transform into new images and heroes of myths and legends. Not paying attention to the fact that Christianity and pagan faith are mixed in the picture, the artist stubbornly defends the right to the existence of various directions and views.

The picture amazes with its harmony and peacefulness, warmth and streams of love, as if Cupids really send their arrows into the hearts of those who are warm and attentive to art. I want to study every corner and curl for a long time and tirelessly, I want to become a part of it.
