Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (c. 1445 – 7 May 1510), better known as Sandro Botticelli, was an Italian painter during the early Renaissance.

Biography

Botticelli used the notable Florentine beauty Cristina Vespucci as a model for his paintings[1] and worked under the patronage of Lorenzo de' Medici, producing paintings such as The Birth of Venus, Pallas and the Centaur and Primavera.[2] Like other rising artists of the time, he had his own workshop in Florence, and several assistants in his employ.[3] Following the fall of the House of Medici, Botticelli became a supporter of the radical friar Girolamo Savonarola.[4]

Botticelli was also one of the painters hired by the Pope to paint fresco panels for the Sistine Chapel in Rome.[5]

In 2012, he was included in a mnemonic set in Abstergo Industries' Project Legacy.[6]
