Pubblicate dapprima nel 1550, esse sono frutto di un lavoro di paziente ricerca durato almeno dieci anni. Il Vasari aveva infatti iniziato a raccogliere materiali, appunti e notizie riguardanti la vita e l'attività degli artisti italiani già nel 1540, quando aveva trent'anni. Iniziando da Cimabue, il Vasari racconta, analizza, commenta la vita e l'opera degli artisti italiani vissuti nell'arco di tre secoli, per giungere fino ai suoi contemporanei, senza tralasciare nessuno: dai più celebri, come Raffaello e Michelangelo, a quelli che solo pochi conoscono. Con l'introduzione di Maurizio Marini.

I took a Master's level Art History class on Giorgia Vasari at FSU a few years ago and this was the translation of the book that the professor wanted us to buy for the class. And for good reason. It's probably the most complete and accurate translation of Vasari's works out there and is downright affordable in this edition (yes $44 is affordable for this. It's a nice two volume edition with a slipcover to store the books in and the books themselves have a nice sturdy binding. If you have to buy a translation of Vasari's works or just want to explore what the first art historian wrote, you can't go wrong with this edition. ( )
