Lecture Highlights
Botticelli's art is one of the most inspiring and poetic pages in the history of art. His characters with their weightless pace are charmingly graceful and open the world of beauty to us. Being an artist of the pre-renaissance era, Botticelli is on the border of two systems, two worldviews.

He already understands the "realism" of the human body that is built, according to renaissance ideas, on the basis of antique sculptures. But he is also close to the mystical, symbolical worldview of medieval art. Botticelli feels the incomprehensible secret of life and freezes in awe, creating mysterious, inspired images. At the same time, he immortalizes the intellectual concepts of Humanists in his artworks, he translates philosophical ideas of his epoch into the language of art.

Who is the lecturer?
My path in art began with classical music, from where I came to art history.

I am convinced that if you do something, you need to do it with the fire inside. Then you begin to see it in the eyes of those who are next to you. I love to use a creative, lively approach to anything that I do. I write articles about art and sometimes poetry.

I appreciate personal communication, the best addition to which is a cup of fresh coffee.

For me, art is a way to talk about what is important, about meaning, about the love that moves the Sun and the stars.
