--"Nothing can rival the power of art." --"Not even sex?"
Fra Filippo Lippi is born lucky. He has a talent beyond any of his peers. He is set to be one of his generation's greatest artists.
Escaping his monastery, he is captured by pirates. Escaping imprisonment, he gains the patronage of the Florence's most powerful citizen, Cosimo de' Medici. Winning the favour of even the Pope himself, Filippo's uncontrollable lust sees him thrown into confinement. Escaping once again, he must flee from Florence to pursue his art - and his mischievous love affairs. All is well until, for once, love strikes true...
"You're dying for it - someone to knock the brains out of you till all the tatters of your wasted life are left spread across the floor, moist and glistening from the spoils of your body"
