In most romantic languages, “Primavera” means springtime. The vibrant blooms and colors of springtime inspired this painting meanwhile, hinting at the transcendence of youth into adulthood. The flower bud reaching maturity in bloom exemplifies the transition into becoming a young woman. This celebrates a time of uncertainty, changes, and ultimately the shedding of the veil of innocence to instead adopt the soft silk of newfound sensuality. The butterfly symbolizes the metamorphism into becoming recognized as a woman.
