Lives of Tintoretto

  • Giorgio Vasari, Pietro Aretino, Andrea Calmo, Veronica Franco, and Carlo Ridolfi

    Born Jacopo Comin, Tintoretto (ca. 1519–1594) was one of the great painters of the late Renaissance. This book presents the first biographies of Tintoretto, by Giorgio Vasari and Carlo Ridolfi, as well as accounts from individuals who knew the artist personally. This volume also includes a translation of the marginal notes El Greco wrote in his copy of Vasari’s Life of Tintoretto, which have never before been published.

    Lives of Tintoretto is an attractive, handy and cheap book that is the ideal first-hand source book for enthusiasts.”
