Botticelli’s Venus: The Making of an Icon
Arts Documentary hosted by Samantha Roddick, published by BBC in 2016 – English narration
Samantha Roddick explores the enduring appeal of Botticelli’s masterpiece The Birth of Venus, one of the most celebrated paintings in western art. A joyous celebration of female sexuality, its journey to worldwide fame was far from straightforward and it lay in obscurity for centuries. Artist and entrepreneur Sam explains why Botticelli’s nude was so revolutionary, and explores its impact on contemporary culture with artists such as Terry Gilliam, who memorably reinvented Venus for his Monty Python’s Flying Circus animations.
