Critical Review

Produced in the last years of his life, Warhol’s series, Details of Renaissance Paintings, renders masterworks of Italian Renaissance artists in the twentieth-century medium of screen printing. This particular image, one of six styles from the Botticelli series, stays true to the Quattrocento master’s palette, but updates the image with bright pinks and yellow highlights. Warhol first applied printing to Renaissance masterpieces after seeing the Mona Lisa in New York in 1963. Two decades later, he returned to the subject of the female icon with Botticelli’s Venus, giving her a similar treatment to that of Marilyn Monroe.
