The painter of souls

Kazan, Philip, author; Philpott, Daniel, narrator

Filippo Lippi is growing up in Renaissance Florence. He has a talent - not only can he see the beauty in everything, he can capture it and paint it. But while beauty can seduce you, and art can transport you, it cannot always feed you or protect you. To survive, Filippo - street urchin, forger, drinker and seducer of nuns - must become Fra Fra Filippo Lippi - Carmelite friar, man of God. Yet, at the same time, he is Lippo Lippi, creator of some the most radiantly beautiful paintings, Botticelli's teacher and Medici's confidante. So who is he really - lover, believer, father, teacher or artist?
