Tip from tour guide



The Calumny by Botticelli

One of my favorite paintings at Uffizi Gallery is The Calumny by Botticelli, 1495.

It depicts a scene from a lost Greek painting of Apelles. It was described by a Lucian of Samosata in the 2nd century: "On the right of it sits Midas with very large ears, extending his hand to Slander while she is still at some distance from him. Near him, on one side, stand two women—Ignorance and Suspicion.

On the other side, Slander is coming up, a woman beautiful beyond measure, but full of malignant passion and excitement, evincing as she does fury and wrath by carrying in her left hand a blazing torch and with the other dragging by the hair a young man who stretches out his hands to heaven and calls the gods to witness his innocence. She is conducted by a pale ugly man who has a piercing eye and looks as if he had wasted away in long illness; he represents envy.

There are two women in attendance to Slander, one is Fraud and the other Conspiracy. They are followed by a woman dressed in deep mourning, with black clothes all in tatters—she is Repentance. At all events, she is turning back with tears in her eyes and casting a stealthy glance, full of shame, at Truth, who is slowly approaching."

Uffizi Galleries

This is one of young Leonardo da Vinci's masterpieces, the Annunciation from around 1473 when he was still in the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio. The panel is from the church of San Bartolomeo in Monte Uliveto. The architectural elements are drawn according to the rules of perspective with a central vanishing point, but some anomalies found in the figure of the Virgin, whose right arm appears excessively long, may reflect early research in optics by Leonardo, who would have taken into account the lateral (from the right) and lowered point of view determined by the original placement of the painted panel, that is, above a side altar of a church. You can view this painting in the Uffizi Gallery.
