Fra Filippo Lippi is one of the most
important successors to
Masaccio. In 1421,
he entered the monastery of Santa Maria del
Carmine in Florence and was able to observe
the decorative work in progress in the
Brancacci Chapel. Fra Filippo Lippi used this experience in
his first painting, the frescoes in the
cloisters of the monastery (1432), now only
surviving in fragments, with their plastic
figures and individual facial expressions.
His Madonna Enthroned (1437), is, in her
clear articulation, reminiscent of
Masaccio’s alterpiece in Pisa.
In the 1440s, complex movements and a
restless treatment of drapery are
discernible The Annunciation (c.1442). These
were the elements on which his great pupil
Botticelli informed himself. With the
decoration of the cathedral choir in Prato
between 1452 and 1465, his artistic
development reached its culmination, ranking
him with Fra Angelico among the most
outstanding fresco artists of his time The
Feast of Herod: Salome's Dance
(c.1460-1464). -Fra Filippo Lippi painting over oil, Italy paintings in oil- Bio Fra Filippo Lippi painting in oil Italy - Fra Filippo Lippi painting over oil by painting with oil supplier of paintings in oil, Fra Filippo Lippi in oil painting over oil Italy.

Lucretia Buti, who bore him a son, Filippino
Lippi (born about 1457), who as a pupil and
assistant of Botticelli was to give the
latter’s late style certain Mannerist
features. In his own late period Fra Filippo Lippi
painted various versions of The Adoration,
with the Infant Baptist and St. Bernard
(c.1459), the most famous being the one
produced for the house chapel of the Palazzo
Medici (now in Berlin, Gemaldegalerie). With
its fairy-tale atmosphere created by light
and shade, the rich use of gold and the
magnificent flower carpet, this panel
