Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These biographies of the great quattrocento artists have long been considered among the most important of contemporary sources on Italian Renaissance art. Vasari, who invented the term "Renaissance," was the first to outline the influential theory of Renaissance art that traces a progression through Giotto, Brunelleschi, and finally the titanic figures of Michaelangelo, Da Vinci, and Raphael. This new translation, specially commisioned for the World's Classics series, contains thirty-six of the most important lives and is fully annotated.

Synopsis:

Containing facts, attributions, and anecdotes about his contemporaries, Vasari's collection of biographical accounts also presents an influential theory of the development of Renaissance art. This translation contains 36 of the most important lives as well as an introduction and explanatory notes.
