"In the tradition of Tracy Chevalier’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, Palombo has married fine art with romantic historical fiction in this lush and sensual interpretation of Medici Florence, artist Sandro Botticelli, and the muse that inspired them all." - Booklist A girl as beautiful as Simonetta Cattaneo never wants for marriage proposals in 15th Century Italy, but she jumps at the chance to marry Marco Vespucci. Marco is young, handsome and well-educated. Not to mention he is one of the powerful Medici family’s favored circle. Even before her marriage with Marco is set, Simonetta is swept up into Lorenzo and Giuliano de’ Medici’s glittering circle of politicians, poets, artists, and philosophers. The men of Florence—most notably the rakish Giuliano de’ Medici—become enthralled with her beauty. That she is educated and an ardent reader of poetry makes her more desirable and fashionable still. But it is her acquaintance with a young painter, Sandro Botticelli, which strikes her heart most. Botticelli immediately invites Simonetta, newly proclaimed the most beautiful woman in Florence, to pose for him. As Simonetta learns to navigate her marriage, her place in Florentine society, and the politics of beauty and desire, she and Botticelli develop a passionate intimacy, one that leads to her immortalization in his masterpiece, The Birth of Venus. Alyssa Palombo’s The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence vividly captures the dangerous allure of the artist and muse bond with candor and unforgettable passion.

One can almost hear the sweet notes while reading of the passionate and tragic star-crossed lovers" Romantic Times "The book is as beautiful and awe-inspiring as the music itself" Mindfood "[A] richly imagined tale ... an engaging debut" Who Weekly Following her mother's death, the one source of joy for Adriana d'Amato is her music. Now eighteen, she refuses to let her strict father stop her from pursuing her dreams and begins to take secret violin lessons from virtuoso Antonio Vivaldi. Their relationship soon evolves into a passionate, and forbidden, love affair - for Adriana's father is intent on her marrying a member of the patrician class and Vivaldi is a man of the Church. Their affair must end upon Adriana's marriage, but when Vivaldi is forced to choose between his lover and his music, the repercussions will haunt their lives in ways they never imagined. Spanning more than thirty years, The Violinist of Venice is a story of music and ambition, but most of all, passion.

Botticelli's art has proved more magnetic to historians and critics during the past hundred years than that of any other fifteenth century painter. His linear evocations of feminine grace and beauty, epitomized in his celebrated allegorical compositions 'Primavera' and 'The Birth of Venus', have entered the repertory of potent and immediately recognizable images, representing the classical ideal of the Italian Renaissance. His celestially serene Madonnas and sweet-tempered angels have become inseparable from the notion of religious sublimity and devotion in the quattrocento. Susan Legouix offers a fresh and stimulating account of the art and the world of Botticelli. She charts the development of Botticelli's style, his growing assurance and his ultimate adoption of an almost backward-looking, Gothic but deeply personal idiom. The demands of his public commissions for churches and their effect upon his style are measured and balanced against his private modes, especially his illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy, which confirm his genius as a draughtsman and an interpreter. Special attention is also paid to the shifting taste of succeeding centuries and the Victorian revival of interest in Botticelli's work which has raised him to the position of one of the supreme if also most enigmatic masters of western art.

"The Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) is one of the greatest artists of all time. Renowned for the iconic Birth of Venus and Primavera, his work has become part of our collective visual memory, influencing product development, fashion design and artists as diverse as Andy Warhol, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, René Magritte and Jeff Koons. But Botticelli's fame today was by no means a foregone conclusion. Quickly forgotten after his death, he was only rediscovered as an artist in the nineteenth century -- and much of what we know of his work has been pieced together from fragmentary evidence; only three of his works are signed or documented. Since then, ''Botticelli'' has been interpreted in many different ways, and has led to many questions. How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? Why are his works considered timeless? What is it that makes him so ''European'' that his Venus appears on the 10 cent coin? What we can say -- safely -- is that Botticelli, more than any other Old Master, inspired and continues to inspire modern and contemporary art." -- Publisher's description

Botticelli's 500-year-old masterpiece, La Primavera, was painted at a time when Florence aspired to become the cultural successor to Athens and Rome. In 1460, the discovery of a Greek-language manuscript from a pagan prophet of Christianity inspired an intellectual elite, including tutors to the Medici owner of La Primavera. In seeking to defend and strengthen their Church, this elite sought to fuse the “religions of the book” with their pre-Christian foundations. This unorthodox objective was their all-consuming preoccupation at the time of La Primavera's painting.Under the Guise of Spring takes the reader into a deeper understanding of what went on in the early Renaissance, why there was a love affair with Platonism, why people of the time felt they could fuse the three Abrahamic religions, and why they considered it urgent to do so. Though painted a decade before renewed religious zealotry, a prudent tradition of veiling the unorthodox was adopted. Botticelli's disguise, clearly visible, carried a heretical reminder exclusively for the eyes of the young Medici “prince” in his private apartments. La Primavera's mystery, primarily a battle about genre—politics, spring, romance, the Medici golden age—is resolved and revealed in this thoroughly researched book.
