Collector of Lives
A man of many talents but best known for his extraordinary book, Lives of the Artists, Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) single-handedly invented the genre of the artistic biography particularly surrounding Italian renaissance art.
Through his visionary writings, he re-shaped the way artists such as Raphael, Leonardo and Michelangelo were considered, portraying them as creative and intellectual geniuses rather than just mere decorators and craftsman.
In this fascinating biography, the reader is invited into the world of art and the Medidi of Florence as seen through Vasari's keen eyes. From his position as an advisor to royalty, to his friendships with Donatello and Titian, this exciting narrative of intrigue, scandal and artistic rivalry reveals how one Renaissance scholar redefined how we look at art today.
