The Painter of Souls, Paperback / softback Book

The Painter of Souls Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Beauty can be a gift...or a wicked temptation... So it is for Filippo Lippi, growing up in Renaissance Florence.

He has a talent - not only can he see the beauty in everything, he can capture it, paint it.

But while beauty can seduce you, and art can transport you - it cannot always feed you or protect you.

To survive, Pippo Lippi, orphan, street urchin, budding rogue, must first become Fra Filippo Lippi: Carmelite friar, man of God.

His life will take him down two paths at once. He will become a gambler, a forger, a seducer of nuns; and at the same time he will be the greatest painter of his time, the teacher of Botticelli and the confidante of the Medicis. So who is he really - lover, believer, father, teacher, artist?

Which man? Which life? Is anything true except the paintings? An extraordinary journey of passion, art and intrigue, The Painter of Souls takes us to a time and place in Italy's history where desire reigns and salvation is found in the strangest of places.
