Filippino Lippi

c. 1457-1504 Italy/Early Renaissance

 

Brief Biography-Filippo Lippi, named Filippino or ‘the Young’, was born in Prato and is said to have been a disciple of Sandro Botticelli; he first studied with Fra Diamante in Prato, however his work was influenced by his father Filippo. His particular distinction was in the execution of frescos, notably in friezes. When his father died, he completed his works in the Spoleto Cathedral, before going to Florence to study under Botticelli. His influence in Florence, led him to replace Pietro Perugino, when decorating the hall of Palazzo Pubblico. In 1487, he was commissioned to paint in the Strozzi Palace in Santa Maria Novella, from there, he spent time in Rome serving Cardinal Oliviero Carafa, doing frescos in his chapel in Santa Maria sopra Minerva. In 1493, he returned to Florence and proceeded to paint for the Confraternity of San Francesco at Palco. He assisted Perugino and Lorenzo de Credi in the restoration of the damaged lantern at Santa Maria del Fiore in 1498. One of his last tasks, was the completion of his paintings at the Strozzi chapel. He died in Florence in 1504. His most noted painting is the ‘Apparition of the Virgin to Saint Bernard’ in the Badia Fiorentina church, which is in the center of Florence.
