Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574), painter, architect and intimate of the Medici, was a leading exponent of the later renaissance style sometimes called Mannerism, which was heavily influenced by Michelangelo. A short, and very readable book.

Giorgio Vasari, Gaston du C. Vasari helped to some extent, particularly a few pages in the back of the book where Vasari discusses M's personality and approach to art rather than simply the details of where he went and what he did.

Michelangelo Buonarroti  (1475-1564) is perhaps the greatest artist in the entire Western tradition. In painting, sculpture, and architecture, he created works that went beyond anything imagined before. The David, the Sistine Ceiling, The Last Judgment: these works have lost none of their awe-inspiring power. Michelangelo's impact was immediate, and he achieved a level of fame and influence that was unprecedented. It is not surprising, therefore, that the painter Giorgio Vasari made him the culmination of his Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects, the first true work of art history. The biography printed here, from Vasari's much improved second edition, draws a picture of the man and the artist that has an immediacy and authority that are unsurpassed.

I enjoyed this book primarily because it is written by a friend and contemporary of Michelangelo who himself was an accomplished artist. The first person account and recollections of Michelangelo the man were enlightening.

A short, and very readable book.
