Fra Angelico

Fra Angelico

by Diane Cole Ahl




Fra Angelico (Fra Giovanni di Fiesole, c. 1390/95 - 1455) was the most celebrated religious painter of the early Italian Renaissance. This new monograph surveys Fra Angelico's entire career, from his little-known beginning as a lay painter through his work at San Marco in Florence after taking holy orders as a Dominican, and finally to his prestigious commissions at the Vatican and Orvieto Cathedral. The book includes reproductions of all of Fra Angelico's greatest works, including altarpieces, frescos, and ceilings. It explores how Fra Angelico's religious devotion informed his work, contributing to its intensity and originality.
