Almost a year to the day after Sotheby’s set a new auction record for a work by the Renaissance Old Master Sandro Botticelli, it sold another work attributed to him for $45.4 million, making it the artist’s second-highest sale total ever. Details a this link.

Hugo also ultilised Botticelli’s painting of St Thomas Aquinas in the Panel of the Friars.
