Synopsis

Georgio Vasaris original vision of the arts was to see the artist as divinely inspired. This historical work describes the lives of fortyfive artists, including Giotto, Brunelleschi, Fra Angelico, Botticelli, da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Titian, with striking immediacy conveyed through character sketches, anecdotes, and detailed recording of conversations. Despite some factual inaccuracies, Michelangelo praised Vasari for endowing artists with immortality. Vasaris shrewd judgments and his precise pinpointing of the emotions aroused by individual works of art bear out his prediction that he would have a worldwide influence on the history of art.

Volume One covers the lives of Brunelleschi, Botticelli, da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Titian, and fourteen more.
