Join us for an illuminating lecture on Sandro Botticelli’s drawings by a leading expert on Italian Renaissance works on paper, curator Furio Rinaldi. Rinaldi will share new discoveries and insight into the working practices of one of the greatest artists of Renaissance Florence. Stemming from years of research, Rinaldi’s Botticelli Drawings at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco was the first exhibition of its kind, transforming our understanding of the artist’s drawings and creative process.

Furio Rinaldi, Curator of Drawings and Prints, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
