In the fall of 2021, the Jacquemart-André Museum will celebrate the creative genius of Sandro Botticelli (1445 – 1510) and the activity of his workshop, by exposing some forty works of this refined painter accompanied by some paintings of his Florentine contemporaries on which Botticelli had a special influence. The career of Botticelli, who became one of the greatest artists of Florence, bears witness to the influence and profound changes that transformed the city under the Medici.
Botticelli is undoubtedly one of the most famous painters of the Italian Renaissance despite the part of mystery that still surrounds his life and the activity of his studio. Tirelessly, he alternated unique creation and serial production completed by his many assistants.
The exhibition will show the importance of this workshop practice, a laboratory full of ideas and training, typical of the Italian Renaissance. She will present Botticelli as a creator, but also as an entrepreneur and trainer.
Following a chronological and thematic order, the itinerary will illustrate Botticelli’s personal stylistic development, the links between his work and the culture of his time, as well as the influence he himself exerted on the Florentine artists of the Quattrocento.
The exhibition will benefit from loans from prestigious institutions such as the Louvre Museum, the National Gallery of London, the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam, the Vatican Museums and Libraries, the Uffizi, the Galleria Sabauda of Turin, the Galleria dell’Accademia and the National Bargello Museum in Florence, the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, the Alte Pinakothek in Munich and the Städel Museum in Frankfurt.
