Georgio Vasari's original vision of the arts was to see the artist as divinely inspired, permeates this second volume as much as the first. Although at times inaccurate (prompting some dry remarks from Michelangelo), the Lives have a striking immediacy conveyed in the character sketches, anecdotes and detailed recordings of conversations.

Michelangelo priased the work for endowing artists with immortality. Vasari's shrewed judgements and his precise pinpointing of the emotions aroused by individual works of art bear out his prediction that Vasari would have a worldwide influence on the history of art. In this selection George Bull includes the lives of Perugino, Piero di Cosimo and Sansovino.
