it was amazing

This is a book for those interested in the artists of the Italian Renaissance. I have only read about one of the artists--Perugino--whose later paintings are more to my liking for this period of mostly religious work. Vasari's Lives provides a lot of interesting details of the paintings and the artist.My recommendation is to read only one chapter of an artist a month. You will need to refer to the Web sites for pictures of the paintings.
