He was so saintly that Many egads were made up about him. For example one Story relates that when he fell asleep while working on a painting the Angels came Down from heaven to finish it for him. Fra Angelico was bom in Tuscany. His real name was Guido Dipietro Damigello. When he was about 20, he entered the monastery at Fiesole where he became famous for his paintings and illuminated manuscripts. In 1436 Fra Angelico was transferred to the san Marco i monastery in the City of Florence. When the Pope san Marco after Fra Angelico had redecorated it he offered to make the artist archbishop of Florence. But Fra Angelico refused explaining that he could better serve the Church by painting. Because of his Devotion in about 1450 he was made prior or Superior officer of the Fiesole monastery. He later went Back to Rome where he died in 1455. His most important work can be seen today in the Vatican and in Florence especially at san Marco. Quot Angel adoring is a painting that is typical of the tender works of this religious Man. The people of his time called him the blessed Angel because he was so devout.
