Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale’s idealised vision of Botticelli’s studio: The first visit of Simonetta presented by Giulio and Lorenzo de Medici from 1922 imagines an event which could only have taken place before Easter in 1478, when Botticelli could have been no older than 33. The artist stands at the left, in front of an exquisite tondo which he is working on, while the craftsmen and apprentices are presumably hard at work elsewhere. Bowing to the artist at the centre is Giuliano de’ Medici, who is accompanied by Simonetta Vespucci, wearing the green dress. Behind her is Lorenzo de’ Medici, often known as Lorenzo the Magnificent, and behind him are Giovanna Tornabuoni and her attendants. The view through the window shows the Palazzo Vecchio in the centre of Florence.
