"Of all the great Italian painters, Caravaggio speaks most clearly and powerfully to our time. Caravaggio's early paintings of cardsharps, musicians, and street vendors convey his familiarity and fascination with the Roman underworld; his stark and brilliant religious paintings represent, for the first time in European art, the world of the poor, the suffering, and the outcast, and they depict the religious experience of the individual with a directness our age can recognize." "Caravaggio lived hard and died young, having fled Rome for Sicily, apparently after killing another man in a dispute; his life, involving powerful patrons, sybaritic cardinals, and saints, as well as street boys, prostitutes, and rivalrous painters, is one of the most colorful of any artist's. This biography - the first in English in two generations - shows us Caravaggio's genius with the striking clarity of his own paintings."--BOOK JACKET

Pubblicate dapprima nel 1550, esse sono frutto di un lavoro di paziente ricerca durato almeno dieci anni. Il Vasari aveva infatti iniziato a raccogliere materiali, appunti e notizie riguardanti la vita e l'attività degli artisti italiani già nel 1540, quando aveva trent'anni. Iniziando da Cimabue, il Vasari racconta, analizza, commenta la vita e l'opera degli artisti italiani vissuti nell'arco di tre secoli, per giungere fino ai suoi contemporanei, senza tralasciare nessuno: dai più celebri, come Raffaello e Michelangelo, a quelli che solo pochi conoscono
