Making the Margins Matter: Reading Vasari's Life of Correggio in Seventeenth-Century Rome

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

For over a century following its publication, the biographical information contained within Vasari's Vite stood largely unchallenged, despite a burgeoning critical literature meant to redress the campanilismo perceived in Vasari's assessment of art created beyond the twinned orbits of Florence and Rome. Although Vasari never intended his text as a simple biographical lexicon, his Vita of Correggio remained the dominant account of the artist's life for most of the 17th century, shaping a general perception of the artist's career and impacting the narrative arc of Correggio's personal character. In tracing how Vasari's tale of the undervalued and impoverished artistic genius became a significant 17th century meme arguing for the artist's singularity and reifying Correggio's achievement in the eyes of 17th century viewers, this paper also attempts to demonstrate how Vasari's biography of Correggio became in itself commoditized, adding value even to objects of dubious provenance in Roman collections.
