Description

Excerpt from Lives of the Most Eminent Painters, Sculptors and Architects, Vol. 6: Translated From the Italian; Commentary, Containing Notes and Emendations From the Italian Edition of Milanesi and Other Sources The biographies of Italian artists compiled by Vasari will always be considered the principal source of literary information concerning the numerous great painters who flourished in Italy during the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries. Amongst all the works treating of the same subject, including even those which are based on the most recent researches, there is perhaps none which can claim to be so original and just in its criticisms, so reliable in its accounts, and, before all, so classical in its literary qualities as these biographies from the pen of the Aretine painter, whose imperfect skill as an artist contrasts strangely with his first-rate literary achievements.
