Filippino Lippi.

The illegitimate son of Fra Filippo Lippi and the nun Lucrezia Buti, Filippino was born in 1457/8. He was trained as a painter by his father but later was apprenticed to Botticelli.

His first works show the influence of Botticelli but he soon developed his own style. In 1483/84 he was asked to complete the decoration of the Brancacci Chapel, a work left unfinished by Masaccio in 1428.
