Fra Angelico was born sometime between 1386 and 1400 as Guido di Pietro in Vicchio near Fiesole in Tuscany. Other names Angelico are il Beato Angelico ("the blessed angelic"), Fra Giovanni da Fiesole ("Brother John of Fiesole") and Il Beato ("the blessed") - in fact, he was born in 1982 as Beatus Ioannes Faesulanus, cognomento Angelicus (" Blessed Giovanni of Fiesole, called Angelico ") beatified by Pope John Paul II and declared patron saint of Christian artists. He is considered one of the most important painters of the early Renaissance and Christian motifs in general.

When Guido di Pietro first joined a religious brotherhood on October 17, 1417, he already worked as a painter. In 1418 he painted murals in the Santo Stefano del Ponte. The oldest document that di Pietro as Fra Giovanni and brother of the Dominican Order, dates from 1423.

Fra Angelico was trained as a book illustrator, but has also left numerous frescoes, other murals and altarpieces. Some of the best-known paintings in his extensive work include The Forerunners of Christ with Saints and Martyrs, Noli me tangere (named after a scripture: "Do not touch me" - Jn 20:17) and The Last Judgment. © Meisterdrucke
