"Sensitive and provocative as well as mysterious . . . Blume’s interpretation of painter Sandro Botticelli is at once a florid love story and a chilling political drama." –Publishers Weekly.

So begins a tale of one of the art world’s most beloved paintings, La Primavera, as this bachelor artist and his muse Floriana—a headstrong creative in her own right—enter into a turbulent relationship.
