Giorgio Vasari’s The Lives of the Most Famous Painters, Sculptors and Architects (1550 and 1568) is a classic of cultural history. A monumental assembly of artists’ lives from Giotto to Michelangelo, it paints a vivid picture of the progress of art in the hands of individual masters.

This illustrated standalone edition of Vasari’s Life of Raphael offers a new translation of this rich and remarkable ‘Life’, elegantly rendering Vasari’s literary text in modern terms. A work of authoritative skill and precision, the translation preserves Vasari’s compelling narrative, while beautifully reproduced illustrations bring it newly to life. Editors Paul Joannides and Rick Scorza bring together the original and expanded Italian editions of 1550 and 1568, with succinct commentary drawing upon their expert knowledge of Raphael’s career.

Paul Joannides is Emeritus Professor at the History of Art at the University of Cambridge. His publications include The Drawings of Raphael; Masaccio and Masolino; and Titian to 1518: The Assumption of Genius. Rick Scorza is a writer and lecturer on the Renaissance. In 2012 he was the inaugural Senior Thaw Research Fellow at the Drawing Institute of the Morgan Library & Museum, New York. He is also President of the British Museum’s British Art Medal Society.
