Excerpt from Fra Angelico
Some six or seven years ago I began to make the art of Fra Angelico a special subject of study. In course of time, becoming more and more intimately acquainted with the master through his works, the conviction came to me that the popular conception of him was mistaken cm fond, and that, as an artist, Fra Angelico had never received fair and adequate treatment. The present work owes its inception to that fact.
In seeking to reconstruct for myself his artistic personality, I have not put trust in the conclusions of any other critic, however eminent, but have relied only upon evidence obtained from the artist's paintings and drawings, and upon the testi mony of contemporary documents.
