Beginning with Cimabue and Giotto in the thirteenth century, Vasari traces the development of Italian art across three centuries to the golden epoch of Leonardo and Michelangelo. Great men, and their immortal works, are brought vividly to life, as Vasari depicts the young Giotto scratching his first drawings on stone; Donatello gazing at Brunelleschi's crucifix; and Michelangelo's painstaking work on the Sistine Chapel, harassed by the impatient Pope Julius II. The Lives also convey much about Vasari himself and his outstanding abilities as a critic inspired by his passion for art.

Collected here for the first time, these fascinating early biographies, two of which have never been translated before, describe and celebrate the astonishingly fertile art of Paolo Veronese. Most of what we know about Veronese comes from these three writings, and the Life by Carlo Ridolfi broke new ground in its scope and ambition. Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574), a highly successful Florentine painter, contemporary and friend of Michelangelo, and pioneer collector of drawings, compiled the Lives of the Most Famous Painters, Sculptors and Architects, which remains the greatest single work on the art of the Italian renaissance. Raffaele Borghini (1537-1588), another Florentine artist and theorist of art, expanded on Vasari’s biography. Carlo Ridolfi (1594-1658), a Venetian, was also a painter but achieved greater fame as a chronicler of the art of Venice. More consciously literary than Vasari, he also was more scholarly in his use of documentation. Translated and introduced by Xavier F. Salomon, Curator of Southern Baroque Paintings, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. 14 pages of prints after Veronese, by contemporaries including the Carracci.

Giorgio Vasari's biographical collection "The Lives of the Artists" is one of the most frequently cited art history books since the 16th century. It is also the first comprehensive book on art history ever created. In the work, Vasari brings together facts, knowledge, and sometimes gossip about almost 200 Renaissance artists. Most of the biographies are focused on Florentines and Romans, though Vasari also wrote about other European artists. "The Lives of Artists" not only discusses the importance of the artists, but it also serves as a book of art criticism. Vasari looked at the artists' paintings in minute detail, describing the positive and negative aspects of the artistry as well as the quality of the work. "The Lives of the Artists" has not escaped criticism, though. Many scholars and historians realize that Vasari's information was not always completely accurate; with the lesser-known artists, he flubs dates and other minor information. Vasari also sometimes invented some information and gossip about the artists. However, many have argued that the false information, or gossip, is truthful in spirit, even if the actual events did not happen. Regardless, "The Lives of Artists" is still one of the best art criticism and art history books in the genre, and it provides a valuable look at how the leading artists of the Renaissance helped to shape and redefine the art of their time. Contained here is the second of three volumes.
