Sandro Botticelli was one of the leading humanist painters in Renaissance Florence, and famous for his sweet Madonnas, but he was also a master of myth.

At this two-day course of afternoon talks, Alice Foster considers four of his artworks in depth, from different perspectives considering the myths, symbolism and context of each.

Talks include an interval for tea and cake for those attending in person. For those on Zoom there will be a 15-minute pause after approximately 45 minutes, resuming for a further 40 minutes.
