One of the most celebrated painters of the fifteenth century, Fra Angelico is the only artist to be canonised as a saint, whose works embody a serene religious attitude and strong Classical influence. Part saint, part artist, Angelico was placed at the forefront of innovation, helping to develop the basic techniques and devices that would become staples of the Italian Renaissance. He gave emphasis to realistic perspective and modelling of figures in space, following on from the innovations of Masaccio. His dedication to naturalism anticipated the Renaissance love for classicism, producing innovative works that broke down the restraints of rigidly partitioned Gothic altarpieces. Delphi's Masters of Art Series presents the world's first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail.
