The artist

Fra Angelico (v. 1387-1455)

Fra Angelico is a major figure of the Florentine Quattrocento (pre-Renaissance Italy). Very pious, the artist produced many religious paintings or frescoes, notably for the convent of San Marco. Fra Angelico's painting is particularly remarkable because of the bright colours used by the artist, which give a lot of luminosity and contrasts to his works. He was the painter of the transition between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as the one known as the "painter of angels" he was able to give his paintings a spiritual aura that invites meditation.
