A Brief Bibliography

Titles are in chronological order. Note that there are apparently no articles mentioning Andrea Tafi in the OPAC of the library of the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence. It is also worth noting that Web references to that name are usually referring to a recently- retired Italian tennis player.

It appears that Andrea Tafi is in the running for the title "Most Obscure Artist in Vasari's Lives."
