Spanish language volume. Illustrated. ...yet only recently has Fra Angelicos fundamental importance in the development of European painting been fully appreciated. Paralleling the achievements of the slightly younger Masaccio (1401 1428) , Fra Angelico pioneered many of the stylistic trends that distinguish the early Renaissance, including the rational treatment of pictorial space and the volumetric modeling of forms with light and shadow. At every stage of his career, in fact, Fra Angelico [1395-1455] remained at the forefront of artistic innovation in Florence. Described by Vasari in his Lives of the Artists as having "a rare and perfect talent". His works virtually leap off a wall, with their glorious colors, that seem to shimmer and glow. Glossary:
