Tony Lup, CBC Ideas: "Vasari's Most Eminent Lives" →

A CBC podcast on Giorgio Vasari, commonly thought of as the first art historian.

~

From CBC:

In the mid-1500s, Giorgio Vasari’s short biographies created art history, the artist as genius and even the “Renaissance”. Although rife with inaccuracies and outright lies, his book is still the source on Leonardo, Michelangelo, and many others”

“Teaching myself to embroider became a way for me to work through the labour of mourning and loss. While each of the works in my embroidery series may broach a specific history or theory that I am investigating, the act of embroidering almost aways references a relationship with certain human conditions, such as a search for purpose, a particular sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation, or the fear of death.”
