Museum - Nascita di Venere

The painting was commissioned by Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de’Medici. The theme was probably suggested by the humanist Poliziano, the cousin of Lorenzo the Magnificent. It depicts Venus born from the sea foam, blown by the west wind, Zephyr, and the nymph, Chloris, towards one of the Horai, Spring, who prepares to dress her with a flowered mantle.
