Vasari is the Plutarch of the arts. He created a priceless source book of art history and advanced the art of biography. The union of these two elements produces yet a third dimension: the LIVES is one of the major contemporary accounts of life in the high Italian Renaissance and so contributes enormously to our understanding of that incredibly fecund age. Vasari is entertaining as well as instructive. He reveals human character as well as techniques in art. This edition was specially prepared by the noted scholar Edmund Fuller. It includes all the important biographies plus many of the second echelon. Except for this critical selection of the vast material available in the original, no other changes have been made, and all the original footnotes are included.
