“Giorgio Vasari, the First Author of Art History, and His Lifelong Admiration of Michelangelo”
Lecture by: Joan Lipton
In his Lives of the Artists Vasari published the first biography of his contemporary, Michelangelo. He extolled the sculptures, paintings and architecture that were produced by this dominant force of the 16th century.
As you admire the artist’s David, his Moses, his Pietas and his Medici tombs in this fully illustrated presentation you will also hear the comments that Vasari provided for each, emphasizing their power and uniqueness, and suggesting the legacy they would continue to provide in future centuries.
