Florentine Renaissance painter. Lippi painted mostly frescoes, along with altarpieces, portraits, and paintings on decorative boxes. In his youth he worked in the studio of Botticelli, and was highly influenced by his master. His paintings and drawings are fascinating, rich and dynamic. His years in Rome gave him the opportunity to study antique remains: ever afterwards he introduced bits and pieces of antiquity into all his pictures, whether suitable or not.
