About the author (1995)

Hilliard T. Goldfarb, Chief Curator of Collections at the Gardner Museum, discusses both the cultural context in which Botticelli's works were produced and the trajectory of his career. James Hankins, Professor of History at Harvard University, writes about the impact of Savonarola and religious fundamentalism on Florence in the 1490s. Laurence Kanter, Curator of the Lehman Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has written the catalogue entries and an historical survey of critical appraisals of the artist.
