The paintings of Filippino, son of Fra Filippo Lippi, were successful in their day, but stylistically outdated in his later years. Filippino painted important fresco series and a few portraits.

Filippino’s characters have young faces with soft eyes, as well as the forward inclination of heads. Note his wonderful hands and fingers, which really do look as though they touch, feel, and grasp.

Filippino’s major works are The Adoration of the Kings, c. 1480 (London: National Gallery); The Vision of St. Bernard, c. 1486 (Florence: Badia Fiorentina).
