Raffaellino del Garbo
Raffaellino del Garbo (1466 or perhaps 1476 – 1527) was a Florentine painter of the early Renaissance. His real name was Raffaello Capponi; "del Garbo" was a nickname, bestowed upon him seemingly from the graceful nicety (garbo) of his earlier works. He has also been called Raffaello de Florentia, and Raffaello de Carolis or Karli. He was a pupil of Filippino Lippi, with whom he remained till 1490, if not later. He accompanied Filippino to Rome, where he painted the ceiling of the chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas (Caraffa Chapel) in the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. Vasari thought the artist had died at Florence in 1524. This was evidently a case of mistaken identity, since he was listed as fit for military duty in 1527. Raffaelino probably succumbed during the plague that ravaged Florence during 1527 to 1528.
The reverse of the coin shows the wonderful reproduction of the painting Madonna and Child with saint Joseph and Angels by Raffaellino del Garbo. The obverse of the coin presents the Coat of Arms of Cameroon and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” - the issuing country, “2018” – the year of issue and “500 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
