"The Lives of the Artists" by Giorgio Vasari

Considered the veritable “Bible” of the Italian Renaissance, 16th-century author and artist, Giorgio Vasari, recounts the lives, works and achievements of those artists and architects who best define the Italian Renaissance. From Giotto to Leonardo to Michelangelo to Titian, Vasari fills his biographical accounts with colorful anecdotes, exhaustive inventories, and a great deal of opinionated assessment of the artists he profiles. “The Lives” are a primary literary source compiled through research, hearsay knowledge, but also by direct contact with the Renaissance greats; and are a must for any Italian Renaissance Library.
