About "The Birth of Venus"

This masterpiece by Italian artist Sandro Botticelli depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown. Although the pose of Venus is classical in some ways, the overall treatment of the figure, standing off-center with a curved body of long flowing lines, is, in many respects, from Gothic art. She appears to be floating, not standing. The painting resides at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
