Primavera

Primavera, also known as Allegory of Spring, is a panel painting by Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli. Painted ca. 1482, Primavera is known to be one of the most popular paintings in Western art, though it’s history is unknown. Among the theories of it’s creation is that it was commissioned in 1477 by Lorenzo de’ Medici.

Fascinating work of art, for contemplation on this the first day of Spring…

Daily Inspirations: Hope

“”Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without
And never stops — at all.”

- Emily Dickinson
