Description
The artist and Dominican friar posthumously called Fra Angelico (c1395-1455) pioneered many of the stylistic trends that distinguish the early Renaissance, including the rational treatment of pictorial space and the volumetric modelling of forms with light and shadow. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artist’s oeuvre, and authoritative texts illustrate the stages in the artist’s life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
