Recog­nised as one of the great­est artists of all time, it’s hard to be­lieve that San­dro Botticelli was ne­glected for more than 300 years. Thank­fully, though, his work was re­dis­cov­ered in the 19th cen­tury. On March 5, the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum’s ‘Botticelli Reimag­ined’ will be­gin

to talk about his in­flu­ence in art, film, and fash­ion through the works of Dante Gabriel Ros­setti, Andy Warhol, and Elsa Schi­a­par­elli, among many oth­ers. The ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture 50 mas­ter­pieces by Botticelli him­self, in­clud­ing The Birth of Venus and The Vir­gin and Child with Two An­gels and the Young St John the Bap­tist.

Un­til July 3 at the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum, Lon­don. www.vam.ac.uk/botticelli The Venus dress, as seen in Dolce & Gab­bana’s Spring/ Sum­mer ’93 run­way show
