The following text was written and submitted by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher of Laguna Woods, California:

Fra Angelico, born in Florence about 1400, was named Guido, son of Piero, who was probably a farmer near the village of Vicchio in Tuscany, about ten miles from Florence.  Until recent years his birthdate was thought to be 1387, but new evidence points to a date closer to 1400.  

Nothing was known of his early life; recognized at an early age as being exceptional and he could have made a fortune at his paintings as a layman. He preferred to become a Dominican friar.  He would pray before taking up his brush, and could not paint the Crucifixion without weeping.  &nbs   ...  Displaying 750 of 4442 characters.
