The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli depicts the goddess Venus,  emerging from the sea as a fully grown woman, arriving at the sea-shore.  The painting is in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.  Venus is an Italian Renaissance ideal: blonde, pale-skinned, voluptuous. Botticelli has picked out highlights in her hair with gold leaf and has emphasized the femininity of her body (long neck, curviness). The brilliant light and soothing colors, the luxurious garden, the gorgeous draperies of the nymph, and the roses floating around the beautiful nude all suggest that the painting is meant to bring pleasure to the viewer.
