Guido di Pietro Fra Angelico (Rupecanina c. 1395 – Rome 1455) was an Italian Renaissance painter. He is referred to in Vasari's Lives of the Artists as having "a rare and perfect talent". He is buried in Santa Maria sopra Minerva, where his grave has always drawn worshippers. After his beatification by Pope John Paul II in 1984, the headstone was placed on a plinth and surrounded by a bronze grille with floral motifs. His feast day is 18 February, the day of his death.
