The work is Venus.

It was Bochachellie's vision of beauty and beauty as it was perceived in his time. We today can appreciate the craftsmanship and its historic value. We also get a gimps of understanding as to how men looked upon womanhood.   Today our concept of beauty is more grounded in reality and expressed in many forms.

Bochachellies's image has meaning to me as an artist as a way of giving visual weight and present substance to a by gone time.

Well, it has been very well identified, but alas, I will answer anyway!!

This  is The Venus on a half shell, The Birth of Venus. The flowing hair gave it away. The painting is by Sandro Botticelli.

Funny -- recognized the hair, but the other parts almost threw me off.  Makes me take a second look.

Sandro Boticcelli

The Birth of Venus from the collection of the rich mecenas family Uffizzi

I want to add, as a cultural appendix, that the Venus face was used as a icon for a reknown vector drawing app.

I recognized it immediately.  Botticelli - Birth of Venus.  Disappointed I'm a day late though - just got back from O/S.  Shame - an Artist Daily Apron would have been a good talking point here in Australia!
