(b Prato, c.1457; d Florence, 18 Apr. 1504). Florentine painter, the son and pupil of Filippo Lippi, who died when the boy was about 12. Filippino (‘little Filippo’) later studied with Botticelli and learned much from his expressive use of line, but Filippino's style, although sensitive and poetic, is more robust than his master's. His first major commission (c.1485) was the completion of Masaccio's fresco cycle in the Brancacci Chapel of S.
