The beginning and the end of the Renaissance
by Leslie Primo
Rivalry, Emulation, Competition, and patronage. Raffaello di Giovanni Santi’s (1483-1520) legend would live on long after his death in the writings of Giorgio Vasari and many others. Raphael’s legend became synonymous with the very idea of the Renaissance. Leslie presents the most precocious and influential artists of the Renaissance, the intense rivalry and jealousy from artist, including Michelangelo. Leslie will share stories behind the intense political landscape of renaissance artists
