AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Vasari.

Vasari, Self-portrait, 1567


Giorgio Vasari was born on this day in 1511.

Art owes its origin to Nature herself... this beautiful creation, the world, supplied the first model, while the original teacher was that divine intelligence which has not only made us superior to the other animals, but like God Himself, if I may venture to say it.
