This vase is part of an art vase collection called Silhouette d'Art. It is crafted from fine ceramic and decorated with a famous masterpiece painting. Vases are a cooperative effort between two European fine art manufacturers -- Parastone, a Dutch Art Company, and John Beswick, a British ceramic company. The famous art masterpieces are selected for their visual beauty and then applied to a special shaped vase design with a cut edge to enhance a design element from the painting.
About Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510): Botticelli was born in Florence as Allesandro Filipepi. His nickname was given to him because his portly brother was called Botticelli or small barrel. After initially training to be a goldsmith, he became Fra Philippo Lippi's apprentice and he later adopted the latter's lively color palette and the use of clearly delineated contours. When he was only 25 and the protege of the mighty Medici family, he was given the opportunity to start his own studio. He painted portraits and, as an exponent of the Renaissance, works based on stories from Classical Antiquity. He rapidly became one of the principal painters in Florence.
