Angel'ico, Fra (the angelic), a Dominican monk and the most celebrated of early Italian painters, was so called because of the beauty of the angels and saints he painted. He never would take money for his pictures, and always prayed before commencing a picture. His Coronation of the Virgin is in the Louvre at Paris. His era is 1387–1455.
