Filippino Lippi Biography
(b Prato, c. 1457; d Florence, 18 April 1504). Son of (1) Filippo Lippi. He was a painter of altarpieces, cassone panels and frescoes and also an exceptional draughtsman. His success lay in his ability to absorb, without slavishly following, the most popular trends in contemporary painting. He worked in Florence and Rome at a time when patrons were beginning to intermingle personal, religious, social and political ideals in their ambitions for palaces and chapels: with the support of wealthy and erudite patrons, such as Lorenzo de Medici (il Magnifico) and Filippo Strozzi, he won important civic and private commissions. Lippis most distinguished achievement was the decoration of the Strozzi Chapel in S Maria Novella, Florence.Grove Art excerpts - Electronic ©2003, Oxford Art Online
