This accessible yet authoritative volume examines the life and work of possibly the most celebrated religious painter of the Italian Early Renaissance, Fra Giovanni da Fiesole (c.1390/95-1455), known as Fra Angelico. From the delicate altarpieces of his early career to the serene frescos in the monastery of San Marco in Florence and the many magnificent works he executed for the Popes in the Vatican, Fra Angelico's paintings are here discussed in the context of the time and places in which they were created, and are beautifully reproduced in their true, glorious colours.
