Renaissance Perspectives: The Individual in Context Readings: Giorgio Vasari, “Preface to Part Three”, Lives of the Artists (1550; 1568)

Art is a form of human expression presented through visual, audio or verbal mediums. Relatively, it is most often than not created according to the notion of the creator with regards the most appealing element that he might realize to have an impact on his being and his development as a person. It also provides a distinction on how he sees the society around him thus reflecting the issues that the people during a specific span of time are most likely interested in. The development of art has been accounted to be specifically dependent on how humans defined the society as it changes its face each year or from one era to another. Understandably, this is the reason why it was said that developmental arts does not only show the development of art itself but the advancement of the society as well.
