Birth of Venus Golconde Printed canvas by Young & Battaglia

Birth of Venus Magritte Pastiche

Imagine the Birth of Venus on the Great Wave. This Mineheart pastiche calls on Botticelli, Magritte and Hokusai to create something uniquely beautiful. The main image is of Botticelli's celebrated painting, The Birth of Venus - where the goddess of love steps off the sea from a giant clam shell. Painted in the 1480s, the original portrait is on display in the Uffizi gallery in Florence, Italy.

Artists Young and Battaglia have taken this iconic image and blended it with the work of two other great artists - Rene Magritte and Katsushika Hokusai. Hokusai created another iconic image - that of the Great Wave off Kanagawa, one of the world's most famous Japanese artworks. Meanwhile Magritte famously depicted hovering human figures in Golconda, one of his most celebrated paintings.

The result is something new and unique - a multitude of Venuses hover over the Great Wave. Or is it raining Venuses? Either way, it's definitely preferable to attempting to surf that sea on an oversized shell.

Birth of Venus is part of a series of pastiche pieces where classical paintings are reinvented. This example is a tribute to three much loved artists. In our other canvases, some are portraits with the faces hidden - such as Mona Lisa Apple and Young Woman with a Facial. In others, subjects disappear into darkness, leaving just their hands behind as in Hands of King Charles, Hands in Prayer, Hands Holding Flower and Hand Holding Gloves. Others are made completely invisible, such as Girl without a Pearl Earring and Military Costume without Old Man.

If you're looking for a statement piece of wall art this is a wonderful choice. It's both classical and contemporary, beautiful yet fun. It's a framed canvas that comes in four sizes to suit any space or room. It will work beautifully as a feature piece or as part of a gallery wall.
