BBC - Travels with Vasari

The very best of the best art documentaries. What else do you expect from Andrew Graham-Dixon?

A long time ago, I tried to read ‘The lives of  the Artists’ by Giorgio Vasari. I have to confess I skipped most of his writings other than familiar names, like, Giotto, de Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael...
I found there were too many artists, and, I got bored without visual reference. 

For a lazy person like me, this excellent documentary is a great introduction to his account of the lives of Renaissance artists.
