Vintage postcard of "Group of Angels" by Beato Angelico. More on Angelico below:15th century artist, Beato Angelico, known as Fra Angelico, published by E. Sborgi, Florence, depicting a group of musical angels. Printed in ItalyDeath and beatificationThe Adoration of the Magi is a tondo of the Adoration of the Magi. It is credited to Fra Angelico and Filippo Lippi and dates to c. 1440/1460.In 1455, Fra Angelico died while staying at a Dominican convent in Rome, perhaps on an order to work on Pope Nicholas' chapel. He was buried in the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva.When singing my praise, don't liken my talents to those of Apelles.Say, rather, that, in the name of Christ, I gave all I had to the poor.The deeds that count on Earth are not the ones that count in Heaven.I, Giovanni, am the flower of Tuscany.— Translation of epitaphThe English writer and critic William Michael Rossetti wrote of the friar:From various accounts of Fra Angelico’s life, it is possible to gain some sense of why he was deserving of canonization. He led the devout and ascetic life of a Dominican friar, and never rose above that rank; he followed the dictates of the order in caring for the poor; he was always good-humored. All of his many paintings were of divine subjects, and it seems that he never altered or retouched them, perhaps from a religious conviction that, because his paintings were divinely inspired, they should retain their original form. He was wont to say that he who illustrates the acts of Christ should be with Christ. It is averred that he never handled a brush without fervent prayer and he wept when he painted a Crucifixion. The Last Judgment and the Annunciation were two of the subjects he most frequently treated.Pope John Paul II beatified Fra Angelico on October 3, 1982, and in 1984 declared him patron of Catholic artists.Angelico was reported to say "He who does Christ's work must stay with Christ always". This motto earned him the epithet "Blessed Angelico", because of the perfect integrity of his life and the almost divine beauty of the images he painted, to a superlative extent those of the Blessed Virgin Mary.— Pope John Paul II - meas. apx. 3 1/2" x 5 3/8"Judge condition of postcard from scan but please ask any and all questions before bidding as I want you to bid with confidence.
