Fra Filippo Lippi

I'm going for little Lippi based off that amazing old man painting up top.

Morgan said...

Fra!

Ben said...

Lippi the latter (chronologically).

Elizabeth said...

A more mellifluous name and better painting puts Fra Filippo Lippi at the (tippi-)top today.

Hey, Kid Filippino's good, but Robert Browning didn't write a poem for him. Plus, as we like to say at Castle5000, I saw Fra Filippo Lippi at La Calaca Comelona!

I'm splitting the house! I'm feeling the love for Filippino, especially that sweet sweet annunciation. The boy was a credit to his old man.

(I'm secretly hoping for a tie so the whole family can advance.)

Fra Filippo Lippi. especially for the one of extremely bored people, which made us laugh, but is also nicely painted.

Backup on my "very bored about religion" theory:

"Although he was a monk, no artist ever seemed less interested in painting theological illustrations; his holy figures were real people full of sadness or shock, sleepy, hungry and even bored."

I particularly like the woman at the bottom who is looking out at as if seeking sympathy for her extremely boredom.

Here's an emphatic emailed vote for Fra Fillipo.

Sarah Braun Hamilton said...

Filippino Lippi for me. Although I like the other one too and could be convinced to change my vote if necessary to promote a tie.

Gotta vote for my man F.F.L.

Father knows best. It's the Fra taking this difficult First Round contest, 8 votes to 5.
