My undergraduate degree is in Art History so I ve read my fair share of Art History books It was interesting to me the way he presented artists which was very different than any Art History book I ve ever read Most Modern Art Historians tell you why the artist is important and what he or she did for art but I ve never heard it said that this artist s work was so beautiful that you wonder if he is human or if his hand was touched by God That s how Vasari presents the artists He puts a lot of his own opinion in the biography of these artists and their works I really enjoyed reading his opinion because by the third artist I realized that sometimes Vasari s opinion of what was great art was completely different than my own opinions It made me think that maybe it s because so much has happened in art through the centuries that time and modernism may have changed the way we look at art It was very interesting I even read all of the biography of Michalangelo even though he wasn t my favorite artist to begin with Vasari loved him so much that I think I like Michaelangelo better now I also re discovered some artists such as Antonio da Corregio and Andrea Mantegna who I forgot about though I do not know why

SUMMARY ß Le Vite de' più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori da Cimabue insino a' tempi nostri REVIEW ☆ MIAMIMOTELS.US × Giorgio Vasari Giorgio Vasari × 1 SUMMARY Packed with facts attributions and entertaining anecdotes about his contemporaries Vasari's collection of biographical accounts also presents a highly influential theory of the development of Renaissance artBeginning with Cimabue and Giotto who represent the infancy of art Vasari considers the period of youthful vigour shaped by Donatello Brunel. This 2005 Dover edition is an abridged version of a 1967 two volume edition of Giorgio Vasari s Lives of the Most Excellent Painters Sculptors and Architects often called today Lives of the Artists or just Vasari s Lives The translation used is that of Mrs Jonathan Foster 1851 The artists included are Giotto Masaccio Fra Filippo Lippi Botticelli Leonardo Raphael Michelangelo and Titian These eight artists are covered in less than 250 pages Of the eight lives that of Michelangelo takes up over 100 pagesIn the review I ll use the book s shortest chapter on Sandro Botticelli for examples StrengthsThe book is extremely interesting in parts When the work was first published in Florence in 1550 Michelangelo and Titian were still living and Botticelli Leonardo and Raphael had all died only 30 40 years previously The earliest of these artists Giotto had died in 1337 over two centuries prior to Vasari s work To read the views of these artists lives and works written by someone this close in time to them someone who was himself immersed in the culture of the Italian Renaissance can be intoxicating There s no doubt of the historic importance of the book It was the first history of art ever written and though it only treated Italian art and even there tended to favor somewhat chauvinistically Florentine artists the Introduction to the book makes many favorable points about it The minute descriptions of hundreds of works of art though elementary laid the groundwork for many of the elements of art history the development of compositional structure and the manipulation of color the analysis of the meaning of changes in style and subject matter which were to be taken up by later historians view spoilerThough my edition does not specifically credit the Introduction to anyone I assume it was written by the editor of the 1967 edition and eminent art historian Marilyn Aronberg Lavin hide spoiler
