Born Jacopo Comin, Tintoretto (ca. 1519–1594) was one of the great painters of the late Renaissance. This book presents the first biographies of Tintoretto, by Giorgio Vasari and Carlo Ridolfi, as well as accounts from individuals who knew the artist personally. This volume also includes a translation of the marginal notes El Greco wrote in his copy of Vasari’s Life of Tintoretto, which have never before been published. Richly illustrated, with an introduction by the scholar Carlo Corsato that reconstructs Tintoretto’s career and contextualizes the contemporary sources, Lives of Tintoretto enhances our understanding of this influential Renaissance artist, who helped establish the Mannerist style.

Carlo Ridolfi's biography of Tintoretto is the single most important primary source on the life and works of the famous Venetian painter. Originally printed separate in 1642, it was later included, with minor modifications, in Ridolfi's two-volume Lives of the Venetian Painters. Combining an account of the artist's life with discussions of his major works, Ridolfi provides fascinating details about the painter's working methods and the strategy he employed in securing many of his most important commissions. Ridolfi describes the paintings with precision and analyzes accurately the unusual and recondite themes within them, but his major contribution is the image he gives us of Tintoretto as an artist obsessed with the act of painting, an aggressive competitor whose goal was not wealth, but fame. This volume also contains Ridolfi's biographical sketches of two of Tintoretto's children: Domenico, who worked with his father for many years and played an important role in the completion of his later works, and Marietta, the favorite child whose considerable artistic promise was left unfulfilled by her early death. Ridolfi's account of Marietta includes a spirited defense of the talents and abilities of women, as well as an attack on those who would place restrictions on them--features that must surely have startled his seventeenth-century readers but are sure to please his twentieth-century audience.

The struggles and achievements of forty-six notable women artists of the early modern period, as documented by their contemporaries, are uniquely brought together in this anthology. The life stories presented here are foundational texts for the history of art, but since most are found only in rare volumes and few have been translated into English, until now they have been generally inaccessible to many scholars. Originally published in biographical compendia such as Vasari's Lives of the Artists, the writings included here document not only the lives of relatively well known women artists such as Artemisia Gentileschi and Sofonisba Anguissola, but also those who have languished in obscurity, like Anna Waser and Li Yin. Each life story is preceded by a brief introduction to the artist as well as to her biographer, and the texts themselves are annotated to provide necessary clarification. Beyond their documentary value, these stories provide fascinating insight as to how men commonly characterized women artists as exceptions to their sex, and attempted to explain their presence in the male-dominated realm of art. The introductory chapter to the book explores this intriguing gender dynamic and elucidates some of the strategies and historical context that factored into the composition of these lives. The volume includes an appended index to women artists' life stories in biographical compendia of the period

The Venetian painter Jacopo Tintoretto (1518–94) is an ambiguous figure in the history of art. Critics and writers such as Vasari, Ruskin and Sartre all placed him in opposition to the established artistic practice of his time, noting that he had abandoned the values that typified the venerable Venetian Renaissance tradition, even being expelled as an apprentice from the workshop of Titian. This generously illustrated book offers a long-overdue re-evaluation of Tintoretto. Tom Nichols charts the artist's life and work in the context of Venetian art and the culture of the Cinquecento. He shows how the artist created a new manner of painting, which for all its originality and sophistication made its first appeal to the shared emotions of the widest-possible viewing audience. The book deals extensively with Tintoretto's greatest works, including the paintings at the Scuola di San Rocco in Venice.
