Lives of the Artists Volume II by Vasari

Sold Out

Product Description

Penguin Classics. Fair condition. 


In writing his Lives, Vasari revealed a literary talent that matched, or even outshone, hisabilities as an artist and architect. Vasari's original vision of the arts, in which he sees the artist as divinely inspired, permeates this second volume as much as the first. Although at times inaccurate, the Lives have a striking immediacy conveyed in the character sketches, anecdotes, and detailed recordings of conversations. Michelangelo praised the work for endowing artists with immortality. Vasari's shrewd judgements and his precise pinpointing of the emotions aroused by individual works of art bear out his prediction that Vasari would have a worldwide influence on the history of art.
