Fra Filippo Lippi: The Carmelite Painter
Megan Holmes
0300081049
November 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
This scholarly, well-documented book presents a complex view of Renaissance painter Fra Filippo Lippi, who straddled the social order as both a priest in the church and an artist working under Medici patronage. Holmes (art history, Florida State Univ., Florence) focuses on manifold aspects of 15th-century society in Florence. The importance of religious pageants, the frescoes of Massaccio on the walls of Lippi's church, and the ideas of Alberti, Brunelleschi, and Donatello and their significance in Lippi's imagery are all examined. Lippi's relationships to his contemporaries, especially the Dominican Fra Angelico, are also explored, opening a discussion of the differences in the Dominican and Carmelite orders. Though the book is exquisitely produced, with several hundred illustrations in color and black and white,...

Rogue Angel: A Novel of Fra Lippo Lippi

From Publishers Weekly
The celestial harmonies of Fra Filippo Lippi (1406-1469), a leading Florentine painter of the early Renaissance, make a stark contrast to his dissipated, licentious life as re-created in this robust fictionalized portrait. An unruly orphan (his mother died when he was born, his father two years later), Lippi discovered his artistic gift in a Carmelite monastery, which he left for the pleasures of women and liquor. Damioli, a Chicago journalist, ably charts impetuous, art-obsessed Lippi's growing maturity under the guidance of his collaborator, the painter Masaccio; his strained relationship with the indulgent patron Cosimo de' Medici; and his reluctant marriage, at age 50, to the 23-year-old nun he seduced. Handsomely illustrated with black-and-white reproductions of Lippi's works, Damioli's straightforward,...


From Filippo Lippi to Piero Della Francesca: Fra Carnevale and the Making of a Renaissance Master
Keith Christiansen
0300107161
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In this fascinating book, Fra Carnevale—heretofore a mysterious, quasi-legendary figure—emerges as a well-defined and pivotal artist in Renaissance Florence. In presenting their case, the authors take the reader from the workshop of Filippo Lippi in Florence to Urbino, capital of Federico da Montefeltro’s duchy in the region of the Marches. It was a road most memorably traveled by Piero della Francesca, who worked in Florence in 1439 and became Federico’s favorite artist. This book shows that other lesser known artists like Fra Carnevale also took the same path.
Among the many other artists—painters and sculptors—crucial to Fra Carnevale’s formation and discussed in this volume are Domenico Veneziano, Luca della Robbia, Pesellino, and Agostino di Duccio. Essays by Keith...
