Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140444602, Paperback)In his "Lives of the Artists of the Italian Renaissance", Vasari demonstrated a literary talent that outshone even his outstanding abilities as a painter and architect. Through character sketches and anecdotes he depicts Piero di Cosimo shut away in his derelict house, living only to paint; Giulio Romano's startling painting of Jove striking down the giants; and his friend Francesco Salviati, whose biography also tells us much about Vasari's own early career. Vasari's original and soaring vision plus his acute aesthetic judgments have made him one of the most influential art historians of all time.
