The Bot­ti­celli Re­nais­sance

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES -

One of the great­est painters of the Re­nais­sance is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, well, a re­nais­sance. Or so says the Gemälde­ga­lerie (www.smb.mu­seum, p. 47), where The Bot­ti­celli Re­nais­sance will chart the ex­tent of San­dro Bot­ti­celli’s in­flu­ence from the 15th cen­tury to the present day. With over 100 works of Euro­pean art, pho­tog­ra­phy, and “pic­tures” that take notes from the iconic Floren­tine artist, the ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes ev­ery­thing from an Andy Warhol silkscreen print to a provoca­tive Cindy Sher­man self-portrait to Bot­ti­cel­liesque paint­ings by masters like Magritte, Dante Ros­setti, and De­gas, as well as 20 never-be­fore-dis­played works by the old mas­ter him­self. From 25 Septem­ber un­til 24 Jan­uary.
