Review Roundup… Botticelli Reimagined @Victoria and Albert Museum

This latest exhibition at the V&A gives a refreshing new perspective of the work of Botticelli as seen through the eyes of other artists… 

The Guardian: ***** Jonathan Jones wrote that: “It shows other museums how to reimagine Renaissance art for 21st century audiences.”

Evening Standard: ***Matthew Collings was slightly less enthusiastic saying that: “The V&A should experiment as much as it likes and I recognise the hard work that went into this show. But there’s definitely a problem with it.”

Londonist: **** Tabish Khan cautions: “Just be warned: after this you’ll be spotting Botticelli references everywhere.”

The Telegraph: *** Alastair Sooke found the exhibition: “sometimes brilliant, but often baffling.”

The Spectator: Laura Freeman thought it was: “an oddly back-to-front exhibition.”

The Upcoming: ***** Anna Souter commented: “There are some fantastic classic Pre-Raphaelite works on show, and it is also refreshing to see several pieces by female artists in evidence.”

Culture Whisper: **** ” This is an honest and irreverent look at how one man can shape our language of images.”

Love London Love Culture: “it gives visitors a new perspective of an artist whose work was forgotten for a long time but thankfully rediscovered.”

London Visitors: “it feels like three mini exhibitions in one.”

Botticelli Reimagined opens at the V&A from the 5th March until the 3rd July. To book tickets visit: Love
