The Life of Raphael

The Life of Raphael


Originally written as part of the famous 16th-century text, The Lives of the Most Famous Painters, Sculptors and Architects, this standalone edition of Giorgio Vasari’s Life of Raphael provides a new translation of the Renaissance account.

Making a cultural classic accessible to a modern readership, this version preserves Vasari’s compelling narrative and expands upon its source material by combining the two original Italian editions (1550 and 1568), with additional commentary on the master’s career from the two expert editors, Paul Joannides and Rick Scorza.

This new edition of the historical narrative offers a comprehensive study of Raphael’s life and accomplishments, enhanced with reproduced illustrations of the Italian painter’s work. Discover Vasari’s writing in a new light with its modern translation.
