Description

By Laurence Kanter and Pia Palladino, with contributions by Magnolia Scudieri, Carl Brandon Strehlke, Victor M. Schmidt, and Anneke de Vries

In commemoration of the five hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary of the death of Fra Angelico (Italian, ca. 1390/951455), one of the foremost artists of the Renaissance, the Metropolitan Museum set out to reexamine his career and to establish a more historically accurate profile of the innovative, extraordinarily gifted "angelic friar" in order to dispel myths and legends that have eclipsed the details of his life. This publication features more than seventy-five paintings, drawings, and manuscript illuminations ascribed to Fra Angelico and spanning the period from 1410 to 1455, as well as about forty works by his collaborators. Also included are several newly-discovered paintings and a number of new proposals for reconstructions of important, dispersed altarpieces. Additionally, drawings by the master are analyzed in terms of their original function and in the context of discussion of the artist's workshop, its identifiable members, and their respective contribution to its artistic output.

348 pages, 312 illustrations (257 in full color). 10 3/4'' x 11 1/2''. Hardcover.
