Botticelli's paintings of Venus present unsolved dilemmas to ressearchers. Why do these paintings portray women as the central figures in the narrative when 15th century gender dynamics marginalized women, and what messages are viewers meant to understand from these works of art? My research attempts to answer these questions through an analysis of the "Venus and Mars", which was created between 1483-1484.
