Fra Angelico -Great Italian Artist

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 5:19 AM
Fra Angelico, an Italian painter, was born in 1395 in Vicchio, in the Tuscan province of Mugello, near Florence towards the end of the 14th century. Fra Angelico is also known as Beato Angelico, which means the "Blessed Angelic One". He was the son of wealthy parents. Fra Angelico's religious name was Fra Giovanni da Fiesole. The titles Fra Angelico and Beato Angelico came into use only after his death, as a way of honoring his religious life and work. He died in 1455 in Rome and was buried in the church of S. Maria sopra Minerva. 

Fra Angelico was originally named Guido di Pietro. He took the name Giovanni da Fiesole when he became a friar but he is well-known as Fra Angelico which means the "Angelic Friar". The most famous works of art by Fra Angelico are the Annunciation, The Madonna and Saints and the Transfiguration of Christ painting. 

In 1418, Fra Angelico began his career as an illuminator of religious books but was instructed to undertake fresco painting. From 1438 to 1445, Fra Angelico worked on frescoes (paintings done on moist plaster with water-based colors) and altarpieces for the Dominican monastery of San Marco in Florence. He specialized in pietistic demonstratively religious art. His art stands as an important link between the first and later generations of Renaissance painting in Florence.All paintings are courtesy of Art of Legend
