Botticelli Kommt Nach Berlin / Botticelli Comes to Berlin


Berlin's Gemäldegalerie has some clever ads publicizing its current exhibition (The Botticelli Renaissance) celebrating Sandro Botticelli and the artists he influenced.

The Birth of Venus
Botticelli, an early renaissance painter, is probably best known for The Birth of Venus and Primavera. The ad campaign, Botticelli Kommt Nach Berlin (Botticelli Comes to Berlin), has actors imitating models from famous Botticelli paintings at popular Berlin locations. Years ago, I was fortunate enough to see many of Botticelli's paintings at the Uffizi. Seeing this current exhibition is high on my to-do list.
