    Said to be the inspiration of another, not quite so burning a zealot, and also a great Renaissance artist. Fingers on buzzers!

    No, my man was born three years before Fra Angelico died. You have the right country and both spent a long time in the same city. One of the great sights of this city is extremely evocative.

    The pic is used on the cover of one of the writers books, I don't know if there was a BBC documentary shown recently but I saw one a few years ago.

    Must be JR Ackerley who is (sort of) played by Alan Bates in We Think the World of You and by Christopher Plummer in a cartoon My Dog Tulip, apparently.
