Travel with Vasari

Travel with Vasari is a two-part documentary presented by Andrew Graham-Dixon, exploring the work of Italian Renaissance chronicler Giorgio Vasari. On a spectacular journey through Renaissance Italy, Andrew Graham-Dixon searches for the shadowy figure who wrote one of the most important books on art and looks at some dazzling works, including masterpieces of the early Renaissance by Giotto, Masaccio and Donatello. Giorgio Vasari was the granddaddy of all art critics, travelling Italy in the 16th century for his definitive Lives of the Artists. Scorning medieval Gothic, he praised to the vaulted ceilings the revival of classical art and architecture. It was "a time of miracles that he named 'the Renaissance'," says Andrew Graham-Dixon, as he retraces Vasari's footsteps for this captivating two-part film in a short Art of Italy season.
