Alessandro de Mariano Filipepi, called Botticelli (from Botticello, "the keg"), born in 1445 in the family of a tanner, was one of the most demanded artists of the Medici from the young age. He became one of the great figures of the early Renaissance.

As a portrait artist, he represented the most famous Florentine grandees and created the image of Lorenzo the Magnificent. As a religious painter, he left wide-ranging legacy, but above all he was a pioneer of artistic allegory, famous for new presentation form of the female portraits, which were all created under the strive to find the "ideal image of a woman". For centuries his works were subject to different arguments. So the female characters in the works of Sandro Botticelli have one and the same real model: Simonetta Vespucci, the ideal of beauty in her time. The allusions to that woman are obvious in the "ideal image of a woman", and even in "The Birth of Venus" one can recognize her features.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.
