Battaglia di Marciano by Giorgio Vasari

This is a high-quality version of the famous painting Dan Brown mentioned in his latest Robert Langdon novel, Inferno.
Leave a comment if you’re reading the book, how much are you liking it up until now? For my review on the book, go to http://goodreads.com/mithical


Lets have a little talk about Vasari. Vasari was an accomolished painter in his own right, but he was kind of the first art historian. Not exactly as we have it today and the technical birth is considered later, but Vasari wrote a book caled “The lives of the Artists” and he was so in love with his cotemporary artists such as Raphael and Da Vici that they were higly praised in his work and th Ninja Turtles of Art are based on his high praises. He alsogave us the term Gothic retrospectively for that period of art. He praised italians abovd all else and basically wrote a 16th century blog about italian art.
