Résumé

Giorgio Vasari was one of the few artists in the history of art who built, designed, and decorated his homes. This book is the first to focus on Vasari's decorative cycles for his homes in Arezzo and Florence, revealing the significance of the artistic, cultural, and historical milieu of the sixteenth century. This study breaks new ground in two ways : First, in a personal and original manner, the imagery is related to Vasari's artistic ideas on history painting and the role of the artist.
And second, Vasari's imagery portrays visual galleries applauding his teachers, antiquity and the creation of art.
