The 11 am presentation, designed for people who have low vision or are blind, will include detailed descriptions of the artworks discussed. All are welcome to the highly descriptive tour whether or not they have low vision. There will be an opportunity to ask questions. Both programs will be captioned.

About the exhibition

Botticelli Drawings is the first exhibition dedicated to the drawings of Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli (ca. 1445–1510). Exploring the foundational role drawing played in Botticelli’s work, the exhibition traces his artistic journey, from studying under maestro Fra Filippo Lippi (ca. 1406–1469) to leading his own workshop in Florence. Featuring rarely seen and newly attributed works, the exhibition provides insight into the design practice of an artist whose name is synonymous with the Italian Renaissance.
