About

Fra Angelico (born Guido di Pietro; c. 1395 – February 18, 1455) was a Dominican monk, who was mainly interested in depicting human emotions and giving emotional and psychological tension to the subjects that he painted.

Fra Angelico's painting is characterised by harmony and grace, thin lines and soft colours. Even if the influence of the International Gothic style is evident in his works, nevertheless fra Angelico used innovative stylistic elements of the Early Renaissance as well.
