Fra Angelico

Who was Fra Angelico?

Fra Angelico was an early Italian Renaissance painter described by Vasari in his Lives of the Artists as having "a rare and perfect talent". Vasari wrote of Fra Angelico that "it is impossible to bestow too much praise on this Holy Father, who was so humble and modest in all that he did and said and whose pictures were painted with such facility and piety”.

Fra Angelico was posthumously made a saint in 1982.

Andromeda

Who was Andromeda?

In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of the Aethiopian king Cepehus and his wife Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia's hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon sends a sea monster, Cetus, to ravage Aethiopia as divine punishment. Andromeda is stripped and chained naked to a rock as a sacrifice to sate the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus.
