Sandro Botticelli cover ...

Many thanks David for this awesome Sandro Botticelli cover ;-)

Sandro Botticelli was an Italian painter of the Florentine school during the Early Renaissance (Quattrocento). Among his best known works are The Birth of Venus and Primavera. Primavera was featured on this minisheet.

Primavera (c. 1482): icon of the springtime renewal of the Florentine Renaissance, also at the summer palazzo of Pierfrancesco de' Medici, as a companion piece to the Birth of Venus and Pallas and the Centaur. Left to right: Mercury, the Three Graces, Venus, Flora, Chloris, Zephyrus.
