Lives of the Artists by Vasari

Sold Out

Product Description

Penguin Classics. Fair condition. 


Vasari's Lives of the Artists stretches from Cimabue and Giotto down to the golden epoch of Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Vasari (1511-74) was himself a painter, but his fame rests on these biographies in which he gathered together all the current knowledge of the Florentine artistic heritage and triumphantly fused it with contemporary Italian theories of art. As a critic Vasari is impressive, and time has added immense hsitorical importance to the great popular success his work achieved from the start.
