A Holiday Puzzle

Advertisement (2008)UK newspapers always give us plenty of crosswords and other puzzles to do over the Christmas/New Year holidays, as though we're all going to be bored witless. Maybe this is because their editors have seen the TV schedules! Not to be outdone, here's Coxsoft Art's holiday puzzle: a rather silly advertisement which emulates a famous Renaissance painting. Name the artist and the painting. If you really want to show off, name the year it was painted too. How's this for a prize? I'll feature the winner's website or blog on Coxsoft Art News. Beat that! Answers next year.

I'm probably late but the answer is Boticelli's Birth of the Venus 1482.

Hi, Ian

Well done. You're the first and, so far, the only entrant.

I have the date as 1485, but these tend to vary according to your source.

I'll post the news today and visit your blog.
