Lives of the Artists: Volume 1

Lives of the Artists: Volume 1

(0)Review Product

Beginning with Cimabue and Giotto in the thirteenth century, Lives of the Artists traces the development of Italian art across three centuries to the golden epoch of Leonardo and Michelangelo. Great men, and their immortal works, are brought vividly to life, as Vasari depicts the young Giotto scratching his first drawings on stone; Donatello gazing at Brunelleschi's crucifix; and, Michelangelo's painstaking work on the Sistine Chapel, harassed by the impatient Pope Julius II. Lives of the Artists also convey much about Vasari himself and his outstanding abilities as a critic inspired by his passion for art.

Giorgio Vasari (1511-74) was an accomplished painter and architect, but it is for his illuminating biographies that he is best remembered.
