About The Birth of Venus
The Birth of Venus by Italian artist Sandro Botticelli depicts the arrival of the goddess Venus, symbol of love and beauty, at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown. The shell is blown by the west wind, Zephyr, and the nymph, Chloris (Aura), towards one of the Horai, who awaits with a flowered mantle.
Unusual for the time, The Birth of Venus is painted on canvas, rather than on wood. It exhibits a thin tempera paint technique, based on the use of diluted egg yolk, rendering an extraordinary transparency likened to the pictorial quality of a fresco.
