Packed with facts, attributions, and entertaining anecdotes about his contemporaries, Vasari's collection of biographical accounts also presents a highly influential theory of the development of Renaissance art. Beginning with Cimabue and Giotto, who represent the infancy of art, Vasari considers the period of youthful vigour, shaped by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, and Masaccio, before discussing the mature period of perfection, dominated by the titanic figures of Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. This specially commissioned translation contains thirty-six of the most important lives as well as an introduction and explanatory notes.

Giorgio Vasari Architect, painter and art historian Giorgio Vasari was born in Arezzo, Italy on July 30, 1511. Vasari was a student of the world famous Michelangelo. During his travels, Vasari took notes on various artists and paintings he encountered which resulted in his book, The Lives of the Most Excellent Italian Architects, Painters, and Sculptures. Vasari's murals can be seen at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. Giorgio Vasari died in Florence on June 27, 1574.
