Fra Angelico was born in 1400 in Florence, Italy. Between 1420 and 1422 he entered a monastery the San Domenico at Fiesole. He painted altarpieces and manuscripts. Linaiuoli Altarpiece, a triptych enclosed in a marble shrine, was an early masterpiece, but he went on to paint famous frescoes at the monastery of San Marco in Florence and a chapel in the Vatican. He died in 1455. Here we can see a montage of Fra Angelico and his art pieces. As we can see many of his art piece are religiously based. Including the annunciation in the top left and right corners, the last judgment at the bottom, the Crucifixion of Jesus, and the San Marco Altarpiece on the top. The only painting not done by Fra Angelico is the portrait done by Luca Signorelli of Fra Angelico see on the right side. The works of Fra Angelico reveal elements that are both conservatively Gothic and progressively Renaissance. In the altarpiece of the Coronation of the Virgin, painted for the Florentine church of Santa Maria Novella, are all the elements that a very expensive altarpiece of the 14th century was expected to provide- a precisely tooled gold background, lots of azure, lots of vermilion and an obvious display of arsenic blue.

As you gaze upon this picture your soul is slowing deteriorating. We have imbedded mind altering micro dots into the back ground of this picture with out the knowledge of the the supposed "creator" aka James Woody. You will be taken to the depths of the global bath tub on the third night after you have gazed upon this for the third time. You may never escape. You may never sleep. You may never eat yet you will never die and your fingers and feet will prune. Peace be upon you. #THEORDER

I like the symmetry of the collage. It really brings all of Fra's paintings together in a very creative way. Also the colors go together nicely. A+!
