Filippino Lippi

Filippino Lippi - Figural Composition
The first art instructor of Filippino Lippi was his father Filippo Lippi. After his father’s death, Filippino left to enter the studio of Sandro Botticelli, where he trained until 1473. Lippi was one of the most highly acclaimed Florentine masters of his generation. The subject of the National Gallery in Prague’s drawing is unknown. It may represent The Finding of Moses by Pharaoh’s Daughter. Late in his career, Lippi made several drawings with themes derived from the life of Moses. The rapid pen strokes and delicate washes indicate that this drawing was also created in the late 15th and early 16th centuries.
