Sandro Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, 1482 was one of his masterpieces that featured Venus, the Roman goddess of love. However, Warhol took her image and title and transformed it to hold a more celebrity status and Pop art feel. Warhol eliminated the excess featured in the original painting, including her body to focus on her face and flowing hair. This specific print of the four-screenprint series portrays Venus in subtler hues against a bright blue background to accentuate her divine beauty.
