Investigating the historiography and especially the masterpieces of this extraordinary Early Florentine Renaissance artist, the author tries above all to redeem him from that kind of “crime legend” that already pursued him during his life and especially after the first famous biographies by Bandello and Vasari, even up to the most recent works of criticism.
His life and works are recalled in this skilfully reasoned biography so as to produce a complex, fascinating image of the great painter and his personal adventurous experiences. Filippo Lippi’s masterpieces, already highly praised by his contemporaries, once decorated the altars of the most important churches and are now the pride of important galleries, first of all the Uffizi and the Palatine Gallery in Palazzo Pitti, just as even today Prato and Spoleto Cathedrals are proud of the magnificent fresco cycles by Lippi on their walls.
For years Massimo Winspeare has been working with Sillabe, for which he has already written a valuable volume, for the “Profili” series, entitled The Medici. The golden age of collecting, also published in the Pocket version.
