ART HISTORY 338
16th-CENTURY ITALIAN RENAISSANCE ART
A Bibliography


For your reference and use in this course, here is a brief list of some of the basic sources for 16th-century Italian Renaissance art and architecture. Even the general literature is vast in number and subject, so use the titles below as the beginnings of more extensive research. Please remember also that there is also a Bibliography page attached to almost every one of the online Lives of Giorgio Vasari.

Here's a link to the books on reserve for this course.
