Description

The famous painter Fra' Angelico was a superstar of the early Renaissance. Here in the Chiesa di San Marco (and the adjacent 15th century Dominican monastery) he served God together with the fire blight preacher Girolamo Savonarola. See Angelico's most famous art and frescoes as you explore this 15th century religious complex.

Fra' Angelico completed most of his work while he was known as "Il Beato" (The Blessed). He was named a saint by Pope John Paul II in 1984. In the Museo di San Marco you can see a number of his paintings, among them the famous Deposition of Christ and its realistic representation of nature

Here too there are a number of breathtaking and important frescoes - among them Giovanni Antonio Sogliani's The Miraculous Communion of St. Domenic and Fra' Angelico's Crucifixion and Saints in the former Chapter House. The frescoed Annunciation is Fra's most famous work here - and with good reason!

In the cells there are other religious reliefs and devotional frescoes, all of which contrast sharply with the simple rooms in which Savonarola - a Dominican friar and preacher - lived from 1489 until he pushed the church too far and was hung in the square

See a few items once owned by the headstrong monk who fought fiercely against greed and luxury - including a marble monument erected by his admirers in 1873.
