Vasari (1511-1574) was himself a painter, but he is really remembered for these biographies which begin with Cimabue and Giotto in the late 13th century and trace the developments in Italian art down to the golden epoch of Leonardo, Michelangelo and Titian. This book also conveys much about the author himself and his abilities as a critic inspired by his passion for art. Included are Vasari's reflections on the state of contemporary Florentine art, its philosophy and its aims.

Beginning with Cimabue and Giotto in the thirteenth century, this work traces the development of Italian art across three centuries to the golden epoch of Leonardo and Michelangelo. It presents great men, and their immortal works. It depicts Michelangelo's painstaking work on the Sistine Chapel, harassed by the impatient Pope Julius II.
