March 1, 1445.- Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, better known as Sandro Botticelli or Il Botticello “The Little Barrel”; (c. 1445 – May 17, 1510) was an Italian painter of the Florentine school during the Early Renaissance (Quattrocento). Less than a hundred years later, this movement, under the patronage of Lorenzo de’ Medici, was characterized by Giorgio Vasari as a “golden age”, a thought, suitably enough, he expressed at the head of his Vita of Botticelli. His posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century; since then his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting. Among his best known works are The Birth of Venus and Primavera.

历史上的今天——意大利画家桑德罗·波提切利(Sandro Botticelli)诞生

2011年3月1日译文

144531 Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, 人称桑德罗·波提切利(Sandro Botticelli)或Il Botticello(小颜料桶),c. 1445 – May 17, 1510,是意大利文艺复兴早期(Quattrocento)佛罗伦萨画派的代表人物。几百年后,文艺复兴在美第奇家族领主洛伦佐·美第奇(Lorenzo de’ Medici )的资助下发展为乔治奥·瓦萨利(Giorgio Vasari) 笔下的“黄金时代”,这一言喻再恰当不过地出现在他撰写的题为《波提切利的一生》(Vita of Botticelli)书中。虽然在波提切利死后的19世纪末期,他的名声并不响亮;但如今,他的画作已被公认为是文艺复兴早期绘画的代表。他最为世人所熟知的两幅画作莫过于如今收藏在佛罗伦萨乌菲齐美术馆中的“维纳斯的诞生”与“春神”

1445年3月1日,波提切利(Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi,better known as Sandro Botticelli,c. 1445–May 17, 1510)诞生,这个名字原是一个小绰号Il Botticello ,意为小水桶。他是14世纪文艺复兴早期翡冷翠画派的代表人物。其后100年在劳伦佐·梅迪奇(Lorenzo de’ Medici)的支持下被乔治奥·瓦萨利(Giorgio Vasari)称为“黄金时代”(golden age),这一论调的中心人物即是波提切利。但其死后的名声并不响亮,这一直持续到19世纪晚期;自此往后,其作品被视为文艺复兴早期画作典雅线条的典范。他最有名的两幅画作莫过于《维纳斯的诞生》与《春神》。
