Fra Filippo Lippi, (c. 1406, Florence, Italy - October 8/10, 1469, Spoleto, Papal States), Florentine painter in the second generation of Renaissance artists.

A number of painters emerged out of the Italian Renaissance and began to show an interest in the beauty of nature and the human body. Here, we take a look at 10 of the most important of these masters. Raffaello Sanzio (known simply as Raphael to most) was born in Urbino to Giovanni Santi, a painter in the town’s court. Masaccio was influenced by the sculptor Donatello and the architect Brunelleschi. Unfortunately, just four works that were unquestionably done by him survive today, although others have been attributed in whole or in part to him.

These two complementary volumes, Fra Filippo Lippi the Carmelite Painter and Siena and the Virgin: Art and Politics in a Late Medieval City State, are available for the first time as a set. The beautiful and compelling book, Fra Filippo Lippi the Carmelite Painter, shines new light on Fra Filippo Lippi's life and career, from his first paintings as a friar to later works painted outside the monastery for the Medicis and other patrons. Focusing on the fascinating conjunction of Lippi's work as a painter and his experiences as a Carmelite friar, Megan Holmes transforms our understanding of the artist and of art in fifteenth-century Florence. Siena and the Virgin: Art and Politics in a Late Medieval City State is a richly illustrated book that explores late medieval Sienese art and its celebration of the Virgin Mary as both an object of religious affection and a focus of civic pride. The author examines how art was created, commissioned, and understood by the citizens of Siena and the surrounding contado, and she offers a new understanding of Marian art and its political function as an expression of civic ideology.
