Great overview of Boticelli's life, excellent context of the times as well. I only wish the many images were labeled (name of artwork, title, year, etc). This seems to be standard on Context lectures but isn't done at all here. I like having references.
Sandra Laville is a wonderful presenter. A wonderful, concise yet very informative discussion of the life and work of Sandro Botticelli.
I love Florence and its Renaissance art. My wife and I have visited Florence several times. It is one of our favorite places. This look at one of Florence's great artists was really good. It examined Botticelli's works, all set in context, both art and history. Well done.
Every seminar with Sandra has been so informative and well organized. It was interesting to see how Botticelli fit into the historical situations of his time which included the Medici family. I hope Sandra will give another lecture on a similar artist in the future.
Presenter Sandra Laville was really good and packed an enormous amount of information into the presentation while never being rushed. Her outline was just right; her explanation of new material was very helpful. I will take her courses again!
