Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564)


Vasari's Lives of the Artists



Below are the links to the first version of the complete edition of Vasari's Life of Michelangelo in the English translation of DeVere. Note that each section has a Bibliography site that is keyed to each group; these currently are just begun. The "sections" are my own divisions and not those of Vasari.

Click the link at the photo above to find the General Bibliography for Michelangelo.

Here also is the link to a shorter version of the Life of Michelangelo.
