Giorgio Vasari was a painter, architect and art historian who became famous especially for his biographies of the great Italian artists. Born and raised in Arezzo, a town in Tuscany, as the eldest of six children, he was apprenticed at an early age to the famous glass painter Guglielmo da Marcillat. This opportunity came about on the recommendation of his relative Luca Signorelli. However, Vasari's true artistic development only took place during his time in Florence. At the age of 12 he travelled to Florence on the recommendation of the Cardinal. Vasari became a student of Andrea del Sarto. For a short time he also studied in the workshop of the sculptor Baccio Bandeinelli. During his time in Florence Vasari also became friends with Michelangelo and became a great admirer of his work. The influence of Michelangelo is evident in many of Vasari's works.

When Vasari was 16 years old, his father died of the consequences of the plague. The young, aspiring artist left Florence and returned to his home town. Vasari had to accept various jobs to provide for his family. In this context Vasari became aware of how important financial security can be. He understood how important it was to cultivate relationships and secure the favor of influential patrons. At the age of 20, he accompanied his friends from the Medici family to Rome, where they copied Roman ruins, monuments and frescoes by Raphael and Michelangelo. Vasari's close association with the Medici family lasted for many years and was also beneficial to his family. The death of his patrons and close friends Ippolito and Allessandro Medici caused Vasari to suffer a depression. Therefore he withdrew from the Medici court. He spent the next years mainly travelling and learned a lot about Italian art and its great creators.

Finally, at the age of about 35, he came to Rome, where he entered the service of the noble family Farnese. Since the Medici and Farnese families were rivals, a return to Florence was long unthinkable. Vasari maintained a secret relationship with Maddalena Bacci, which produced two children. In the end, however, Vasari married Maddalena's younger sister, Niccholosa. To avoid a scandal, he returned to Florence with his young wife. Vasari tried to win back the favour of the Medici family by dedicating his famous biographical work Vite, which dealt with the lives of important Italian artists, to Cosimo I, then ruler of the Medicis. Vasari died at the age of 63 and was buried in a chapel designed by him. © Meisterdrucke
