Description:
Author: Giorgio Vasari; Louisa S. Maclehose, translator
ISBN: 048620717X
Publisher: Dover Publications, 1960
Size: 135 x 215 mm (5.375 x 8.5 in.); 328 pages, 18 plates, 11 illus., Paperback.

Giorgio Vasari (1511-1571) is well known for his celebrated work on the lives of the Renaissance artists. But not many people know that Vasari was a painter and architect as well as a biographer, and that he wrote one of the most valuable treatises on the technical methods of the painters, architects, and sculptors of his time. This is the first and only English translation of this important technical material (originally published in 1550 as an introduction to Vasari's Lives of the Artists).

Scholars and historians of art have long used this book as the most detailed and valuable sourcebook of its time. But its full, readable discussions, combined with the sense of actuality and historical presence it contains, make it also perhaps the best possible description of the Renaissance artists in the heyday of their achievement.
