https://plus.google.com/108326374735079068646 ivonne haminn : Italian Renaissance Art Giorgio Vasari, Florentine painter, architect and art historian was born in ...
Italian Renaissance Art  
Giorgio Vasari, Florentine painter, architect and art historian was born in Arezzo, Italy, in 1511 and died in Florence in 1574. He was a brilliant polymath  and his work covered a number of different subjects including writing, painting and town-planning.
Because of his fame and talent, Vasari was one of the most important Medici court artists. Vasari met Michelangelo. He traveled frequently visiting Rome, Venice, Bologna, Pisa, Naples, and in every city, including his hometown of Arezzo, he left an example of his art and learned something about the artistic trends of the time.
During the first part of his artistic career, he devoted himself to painting. Some of his most famous works are Portrait of  Duke Alessandro de’ Medici (Ritratto di Alessandro de’ Medici), a Nativity for the Monastery of Camaldoli (Natività Camaldoli), and the Allegory of the Immaculate Conception (Allegoria dell’Immacolata Concezione) in the church of Saint Apostoli in Florence.
After that, he dedicated himself to altarpieces and frescoes. After Ciambue and his great pupil Giotto, trained in the Byzantine tradition, which  produced stiff, two-dimensional, hieratic figures, capable of great dignity but not intended to be exact representations of nature and finally set out to break with this tradition and to bring a more lifelike appearance into the painting representing three-dimensional reality on a plane surface,i.e. a real, humanistic representation of the characters of the Bible (Virgin, Child, Saints), Giorgio Vasari was permanently removed of conventional, inflexible Byzantine iconography .
 In 1550 he wrote Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects (Le Vite de’ più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori da Cimabue insino a’ tempi nostri), his most famous literary work. The second edition in 1568 became a classic of art historiography: it is a fundamental text that changed the way of thinking about art history and was also a valuable source of news.
In his “Lives…”, Giorgio Vasari chronicled the evolution of Italian art, from Giotto’s innovation to the celebrated perfection of Michelangelo, through a series of artist biographies, with information about their art works, styles, and techniques.
His biographies are naturally most dependable for the painters of his own generation and the preceding one; its influence has been unparalleled: this book has formed and defined the way we think about Renaissance art, and it has also been adopted as a sort of classical reference guide for names of artists.
Giorgio Vasari was in contact with the leading artists of his era and Michelangelo suggested him to explore the field of architecture. He became famous throughout Italy for the works he created in Rome on behalf of Pope Julius II and others in Arezzo. Later, Cosimo I de’ Medici invited Giorgio Vasari to move to Florence, as he wanted to surround himself with the most important artists of the time. This meeting led to a partnership that enriched the city of Florence with important works.
In fact, Cosimo I commissioned Giorgio Vasari works in almost all construction sites in Florence, which was rich in artistic ferment. In Florence, Giorgio Vasari created the decoration in Palazzo Vecchio  The decoration of the Hall of the Five Hundred (Salone dei Cinquecento) involved considerable work, which Vasari completed in two phases, interrupted by a period in Rome, where he frescoed some chapels in the Vatican. In the Hall of the Five Hundred, Vasari built the magnificent paneled ceiling, and a number of famous paintings still enrich it.
On the walls, Giorgio Vasari painted six scenes of battle that represent the military successes of Cosimo I over Pisa and Siena  including the Battle of Marciano. Giorgio Vasari also decorated the Studiolo of Francesco I in the Mannerist style of the time.
 In 1560 he began work on the Uffizi Gallery, the largest building built in 16th century in Florence and who would later become the famous art gallery. One of  the important Vasari contribution to the Uffizi  was so-called " Vasari Corridor "  designed and built as a connection between the Palazzo Vecchio and the Palazzo Pitti , Ponte Vecchio crossing over the Arno River.
  Giorgio Vasari also worked on the decorations of the dome of Florence Cathedral, but they remained unfinished at his death. In the dome, however, we can still admire a number of his frescoes.
Vasari played an important role in the founding of the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno (Academy of the Arts of Drawing, 1563) and collected drawings by Italian masters. Santa Maria Novella Church in Florence features the Resurrection and four saints (Resurrezione e quattro santi) by Vasari, who also worked on renovating the church.
Finally, Vasari worked at the Basilica of Santa Croce.
The palace where Giorgio Vasari used to live in Florence is now a museum and preserves a remarkable cycle of frescoes in the hall , which he designed and built.
Unfortunately, too few tourists  at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence know that Giorgio Vasari was an influential architect, he designed the vast frescoes and reshaped cities. Part of Renaissance artists light should surround him, because he  worked hardly as its name to live up to Leonardo , Michelangelo and Raphael. Vasari was not only a biographer , he was a creator. From the words he built a Heaven for the artists  to which he rised them, founded a religion of art that fascinates eternally  and send the people to pilgrimages in Tuscany. For Vasari in every artist  burns a divine flame and through it the artist rose from normal human condition by divine hypostasis . No other writer , no other historian has influenced so much the image of the artist as the painter of Arezzo.

Santa Maria Novella Church in Florence features the Resurrection and four saints (Resurrezione e quattro santi) by Vasari, who also worked on renovating the church.
Finally, Vasari worked at the Basilica of Santa Croce.
The palace where Giorgio Vasari used to live in Florence is now a museum and preserves a remarkable cycle of frescoes in the hall , which he designed and built.
Unfortunately, too few tourists  at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence know that Giorgio Vasari was an influential architect, he designed the vast frescoes and reshaped cities. Part of Renaissance artists light should surround him, because he  worked hardly as its name to live up to Leonardo , Michelangelo and Raphael. Vasari was not only a biographer , he was a creator. From the words he built a Heaven for the artists  to which he rised them, founded a religion of art that fascinates eternally  and send the people to pilgrimages in Tuscany. For Vasari in every artist  burns a divine flame and through it the artist rose from normal human condition by divine hypostasis . No other writer , no other historian has influenced so much the image of the artist as the painter of Arezzo.
