Angelico, Giovanni

Angelico, Giovanni,

da Fiesola, a Dominican friar of Italy, was born in 1387, and was a disciple of Giottino. He was employed by Nicholas V to paint historical subjects in his chapel. He was called by some the Angelic Painter, because he never took up his pencil without a prayer. He always painted religious subjects. He was offered the archbishopric of Florence as a reward for his talents by Nicholas V, but refused the honor. He died in 1448.
