Giorgio Vasari ( 1511 - 1574 )  Category ( Artists ) [suggest a correction]
 

Born in Tuscany in 1511, Giorgio Vasari was able to pursue his artistic endeavors by the time he was sixteen years old. He was able to study under the watchful eye of Guglielmoda Marsiglla who was a well known 16th century Italian painter. Vasari knew Michelangelo and he was able to rub shoulders with some magnificent artists during his era.

In 1529, he traveled to Rome and it was there that he learned more about Raphael and other important artists from the Renaissance period. He developed a love for painting what was referred to as mannerist paintings. It would be those paintings that would help Vasari capture a following.

Giorgio Vasari gained employment opportunities through the wealthy Medici family. He worked in Naples and other areas as well. His extraordinary ceiling paintings and wall art were something so remarkable that few could even describe when they saw his paintings. The artist would, in fact, leave many in awe.

Known as the "Dick Clark" of the Renaissance period, Vasari would emerge from the era as a true leader of the art world. Not only was Vasari a talent to be reckoned with as a painter but his work as an architect was incredible.

He was known for various building accomplishments but he was also known for his work in medieval churches. During his lifetime, Vasari would create an enormous amount of true wealth.

Giorgio Vasari built a home in Arezzo, Tuscany. He died in 1574 but his home would later become a museum which allowed his followers the opportunity to continue enjoying the work Vasari was able to create in his lifetime.
