This understated friar would devote his life to two things - the Church and fresco painting. Much of his work supported the same convents in which he had lived himself. His use of colour and detail can be brought out by a high quality print reproduction, with framed prints being best suited to the Renaissance style.
Religious followers in the present day can make use of Fra Angelico's work just as those in his day had done within their convent. The events of Christ's life help people with faith to remember the sacrifices that were made in order to help others, both then and now. Those with more of an artistic feeling can enjoy the technical mastery that he brought to the early Renaissance.
An additional reason to buy Fra Angelico art prints, or those of other Renaissance painters, might be as a momento of a recent trip. What better way to remember a particularly enjoyable trip to Florence, for example, than to hang a high quality copy on your wall of one of the artworks that you saw on your travels? The larger retailers offer a great selection of his work, including detailed sections of larger pieces.
Whilst ranking as one of the most reproduced of all artists, fans of the Renaissance may also consider adding Masaccio prints to their homes instead. Artwork by Giotto, Giovanni Bellini and Annibale Carracci are also popular and closely related to this artist. As mentioned, all art in this early style is best suited to large frames and perhaps a small inlay card too.
All of the artworks featured in our paintings section should be available for reproduction and artists of this period are without copyright protection, meaning it is much easier for a variety of companies to reproduce them. Creating a calming atmosphere in the home is essential for relaxation after work or at the weekend and the work of this artist will surely help to achieve that.
