Unsurprisingly, perhaps, Michelangelo was dissatisfied with Vasari’s treatment, and encouraged his close friend and fellow-painter Ascanio Condivi to publish a rival biography.
Condivi’s “Life” is an impassioned and intimate portrait of Michelangelo, which gives an unparalleled picture of the master’s life, work and personality. This compelling narrative of genius and its struggles in the treacherous world of Papal politics and Italian wars remains one of the most fascinating and influential texts in art history. This edition reproduces the long unavailable translation by Charles Holroyd, and has 49 pages of illustrations covering the span of Michelangelo’s achievement, including many of the drawings currently on show at the British Museum.

Ascanio was a moderately talented painter sculptor and architect from Ripatransone in the Marches. He is remembered today for his biography of his friend Michelangelo Buonarroti. This biography is divided into three parts: To the Pope “Julius III”, to “The Readers” and “The Life of Michelangelo” According to historical documents at that times, there were a strong competition between Ascanio Condivi, from Ripatransone, the first and authorised biographer of Michelangelo condivii the antagonist Giorgio Va Ascanio was a moderately talented painter sculptor and architect from Ripatransone in the Marches.
A reason for their hatred is their geographic origin, one from a miniscule and unknown village and the other from conduvi city.
Most probably Vasari did not accepted that Ascanio was a friend of Michelangelo According to some literary critics Ascanio was the unique biographer this is proved by this biography and in particular when Ascanio reveals the intimate life of Michelangelo.
Dialogue between Michelangelo and Pope Julius III “I’ve already told your holiness that this is not my art; all that I’ve done is spoiled; if you do not believe it send and see” P.

I do not wish to spoil this book for anyone, but I do offer one suggestion. Read the Introduction to whatever edition you have and pick up or find it on GoogleBooks a copy of Giorgio Vasari’s Most Excellent Lives to read his vita life of Michelangelo.
Because you will want to know what Vasari did and did not change following the publication of Condiv Michelangelo transformed the status of the artist from hired craftsman to patrician artisan through his art, ideals, and Condivi’s Coneivi.
Because you will want to know what Vasari did and did not change following the publication of Asanio Life and Mikey’s death. Condivi’s Life is a true literary rebuttal in Michelangelo’s voice and pen as some believe. The Life of Michelangelo is a testament to the ideals of an age and a singular man. As a contemporary biographer I much prefer Condivi to Vasari. He gives more concrete details of incidents in Michelangelo’s life and his praise is within bounds. The choice of illustrations in this edition is very good although the quality of reproduction is not up to modern standards.
