Pete Jennings BS: Naming of artists (19) RE: BS: Naming of artists 20 Jan 14


The Renaissance artists' names mentioned above are nothing to do with gimmicks and everything to do with "Lives of the Artists" by Georgio Vasari.

First published in Florence in 1550, it was revised and extended for a second edition, which was published in 1568. Vasari was an artist himself and knew most of the others.

This is one of the most important books in art history and is a mandatory text for anyone who is interested.
