Abstract :
Discusses Vasari's efforts to raise the status of art and hence the standing of his fellow artists. Outlines a number of Vasari's strategies, such as the 140 woodcut portraits that illustrate the second edition of Vite, his Libro de' disegni, founding of the Accademia del Disegno, and his design for Michelangelo's tomb, all of which he undertook in the 1560s. Discussion of some of the eight surviving pages of Vasari's Libro de' disegni draws attention to the extent to which these resemble shrines or funerary memorials, another art form which was limited to those of higher rank and therefore appropriated by Renaissance artists, including Vasari himself, as a means of elevating the self. ;
