MASTERS OF ITALIAN ART - FRA ANGELICO

MASTERS OF ITALIAN ART - FRA ANGELICO

The Dominican monk, Giovanni da Fiesole, known as Fra Angelico (around 1395-1455) is one of the most important and successful representatives of the transition between the end of the Gothic era and the beginning of the early Renaissance in Italy. His unique work is deeply imbued with monastic belief and thought, and he unites a sense of perspective and delicate architectural backdrop with a true-to-life depiction of the human form. His delicate colors and soft forms fascinate the spectator. The summit of his architectural achievement is represented by the work for the monastery at San Marco. The fresco decoration is exceptional for its exemplary simple and reduced narrative structure, which at the same time fulfils its purpose as a means of private contemplation.
