About The Book
Packed with facts, attributions, and entertaining anecdotes about his contemporaries, Giorgio Vasari’s collection of biographical accounts also presents a highly influential theory of the development of Renaissance art.
Beginning with Cimabue and Giotto, who represent the infancy of art, Vasari considers the period of youthful vigour, shaped by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, and Masaccio, before discussing the mature period of perfection, dominated by the titanic figures of Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo.
This specially commissioned translation contains thirty-six of the most important lives as well as an introduction and explanatory notes.
