Product Description:
La Primavera Video (VHS/DVD). Is Botticelli’s La Primavera an artistic allegory? A pageant of sexual permissiveness? An emblem of Renaissance humanism and Neoplatonism? This program offers multiple interpretations of one of the most hotly debated works in the history of Western art as it tracks La Primavera from its creation, to its decline into obscurity, to its sensational reemergence as an icon of the Pre-Raphaelites, to its place in modern pop culture as an object of both reverence and satire. Technical aspects of La Primavera’s painting, such as Botticelli’s use of egg tempera and lead white, are touched upon as well. A BBCW Production. (50 minutes).
