The Birth of VenusSandro Botticelli, circa 1485Tempura on canvas
A painting of the Roman goddess Venus riding a scallop shell after being born in the ocean. The name Botticelli is said to actually be a nickname given to the artist's brother, who was built like a barrel. Why this nickname was transferred between siblings is a mystery lost to the ages.
- Note: Prior to New Leaf, paintings did not have visual differences between forged and genuine versions. Therefore, paintings given to Blathers were fake or authentic at random.
|The fake painting includes a shell facing downward, whereas in the real painting, it is upward.|
|The fake painting lacks the trees behind the Hora of Spring (the woman on the right).|
