    We get of Vasari's flowery subjective opinion of the works of these artists of a resume of their work than a chronology of their lives However the book is valuable because a contemporary artist is describing men some of whom he knew personally who are the greatest artists in history After reading about each artists it's a good idea to google their work to see what Vasari is talking about

    The original book of art history Vasari's book on the lives of famous Italian artists is the foundation of how we think and talk about Renaissance artists and is never less than surprising for that We tend to forget that common knowledge has its origins in something so this book by someone who actually KNEW many of these artists is the source of so much of how we think about them This book along with Alberti's book On Painting are essential guides to understanding Renaissance art from the perspex gives of those who made it
