A guide to the works of Renaissance painter Fra Angelico, this audio set is intended to aid a listener touring the convent of San Marco in Florence. The listener first learns about the historical context and life of the prolific Dominican artist, through material adapted from Hood's GREAT FRESCO CYCLES OF THE RENAISSANCE. For an actual visit to the convent, the audio guide directs the visitor to various rooms, giving details about the frescoes. Author and guide Jane McIntosh shares her knowledge with a confident narration. She shows concern for maintaining accuracy through historical detail, providing an interesting and fact-filled synopsis. McIntosh's enthusiasm for her subject makes this Smart Art Guide a great resource for the listener who desires a comprehensive guide to San Marco.
