Excerpt from The Life and Art of Sandro Botticelli

Was kindly received by the public last autumn. On larger lines and with greater fullness of detail, I have here tried to give some account of Sandro Botticelli, both as the painter and the man; of his relations with the Medici and the Florentine humanists on the one hand, and of his connection with Savonarola and the Piagnone revival on the other. At the same time I have endeavoured to follow the course of his artistic training and development, and to enumerate and describe the works which, in the opinion of the best critics, may be attributed to this master with certainty. Although of late years much study has been devoted to Botticelli and his art, our knowledge of the great artist's history remains scanty and limited, and no complete record of his life can be given. But his personality and his works are both of them so attractive, and the interest which he inspires at the present time is so deep, that this study, incomplete and fragmentary as it necessarily is, may be acceptable to those who wish to gain a clearer knowledge of one of the most remark able painters of the Florentine Renaissance.
