This second volume of the Kimbell Masterpiece Series focuses on Fra Angelico’s Saint James Freeing Hermogenes, painted in the 1420s. When the Kimbell acquired the work in 1986, it quickly became one of the most important early Italian paintings in the United States. Laurence Kanter analyzes the painting along with some of its original companion altarpiece panels and makes use of new technical studies and archival research to reconstruct the original context, both physical and artistic, of this Renaissance masterpiece.

This beautifully illustrated book shows why Fra Angelico was one of the greatest artistic minds of his age and will be of interest both to specialists and the wider public.
