Vasari persues

Perseus and Andromeda

1570 - 1572

Why is it canonical?

Painted by Giorgio Vasari (perhaps one of the most multi-talented individuals of his age, having completed important architectural works as well as producing the famed collection of artist biographies, Lives), this painting again shows the freedom that artists favored by the court had in creating complex works. This painting is filled with messages and meaning, demonstrating the tremendous degree of learning and study that Vasari must have had.
