Handout No. 1 : Names and Terms Relevant to the First Few Lectures • Giorgio Vasari : 16th-century Florentine painter and architect, best known as the author of the multi-volume Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects , first published in 1550 but issued in a revised and expanded edition in 1568. • Pollaiuolo (pronounced “Pole-eye- woe -lo”): The “name” of our first artist. It derives from the occupation of his father, a poulterer (from pollo , “chicken”); thus he was called “Antonio, son of the Poulterer” (Antonio del Pollaiuolo). • Iconography : The study of those aspects of a work of art that pertain exclusively to its subject and the ways in which that subject is represented, irrespective of the style of the work. • Antonio Pucci : Patron of Pollaiuolo’s Martyrdom of St. Sebastian ; close friend and ally of the Medici family. He appears as Lorenzo’s “right-hand man” in Ghirlandaio’s Approval of the Franciscan Rule , to be studied later in the semester.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
