Pallas and the Centaur is a painting by the Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli, c. 1482. It is housed in the Uffizi of Florence. The painting was discovered in 1895 in one of the ante-rooms of the Palazzo Pitti by William Blundell Spence. It has been proposed as the companion piece to Primavera and interpreted as an allegory on the peace after the Pazzi wars.
