TUSCAN SPRING

For those who are steeped in the spirit of the Renaissance, and like their fiction in the flowery style of the period, this fictionized life of Botticelli will appeal. The material is in itself romantic; the author has not taken full advantage of his opportunities, But he does manage to recapture the ornate, full-blown atmosphere of the period, and is faithful to the details of Botticelli's life, loves and work. The Simonetta story is fused into his life, with its results on his work after her death. A book for a somewhat limited market.
