Fra Angelico

Fra Angelico 1440-42  Mocking of Christ (cell 7) fresco 71.25" x 59.45" 
Convento di San Marco  Florence, It.

When I saw this group of frescos at the Convento di San Marco in Florence a few years back I understood why Fra Angelico was so important to so many artists. The experience was not only eye opening but extremely emotional on so many levels. Should you find yourself in Florence, do not miss the chance to visit and contemplate these wonderful frescos and paintings.
