This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: Pian di Mugnone. With these exceptions he lived in Florence until his death. After Leonardo, to whom he was greatly indebted, Fra Bartolommeo may be considered the greatest painter of the Florentine school. None excelled him in dignity of style, none equalled him in the management of drapery, the harmonious use of colour, or in stateliness of composition. His altarpieces have that nobility of character which springs from the symmetry of their arrangement and the perfect balance of their parts. Their beauty is the beauty of repose, of self-contained though earnest expression, of harmony between attitude and action. Works before 1501: Portrait of Savonarola (1496), Sig.
