Fra Angelico - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Fra Angelico (1395-1455) was an Italian painter. Born in Mugello (Tuscany), Guido di Pietro, (in religion Fra Giovanni, later known under the name of Fra Angelico and Beato Angelico for the Italians) is a painter of the Quattrocento. He was known to his contemporaries as Fra Giovanni da Fiesole. He was beatified by the name of Blessed John of Fiesole.

Dominican monk, he sought to associate the pictorial principles of the Renaissance - buildings in perspective and representation of the human figure - with the old medieval values of art: its didactic function and the mystical value of light.

His art education takes place in Florence. Since 1440, Cosimo de Medici commissioned him to decorate the convent of San Marco, rooms and individual cells of the monks. In 1445 Pope Eugenius IV calls him to Rome.
