A Giorgio Vasari Miscellany

The Lives of the Great Artists (Selections). CD, 6 discs. Read by Neville Jason. From Naxos Audiobooks (NA691012).


Lives of the Artists. Read by Nadia May. Called an "Audio", released 2006. There appear to three "volumes" of this, whatever that might mean. No other information.


Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance. Giorgio Vasari has an important supporting role. This is part of the five part documentary. While some of the artistic accuracy is a bit dodgy, one of the series' attributes is the creator's use of actors who like almost exactly like the portraits of their characters. The fellow playing Lorenzo de'Medici is especially spooky in his close resemblance to Vasari's portrait.
