Filippino Lippi
Italian, 1457–1504
Follow

One of the most accomplished Renaissance painters of the late 15th century, Filippino Lippi was a leading exponent of the tradition of great fresco cycles. Lippi was the product of a notorious relationship between the painter Fra Filippo Lippi and a young nun. First training with his father, the young Lippi later worked with Botticelli following his father’s death. Known for his energetic and complex compositions, warm tones, and naturalistic representations of landscape, Lippi worked on numerous fresco cycles in the chapels of Florence and Rome, while also producing paintings on panel. He was a renowned painter of altarpieces, and received commissions from Milan, Bologna, and Genoa. Lippi’s work was ultimately eclipsed by that of Raphael and Michelangelo, two artists whose fame has overshadowed the success Lippi enjoyed during his lifetime.
