Fra Filippo Lippi was born in Florence, Italy in 1406. He became a monk in 1421 and he, along with Masaccio, painted the Brancacci Chapel with frescoes. His work Madonna and Child and Annunciation have been noted for their mature, warm and narrative style. In 1456, he fled the convent with a nun, Lucrezia Buti. They married and Lippi returned to painting frescoes in Prato.
