De la paternité biologique à la filiation artistique : héritages et appropriations dans les Vies de Giorgio Vasari

Abstract : The biographic genre allows Vasari to present narratives of artists' vocations in which the relation to the biological father varies from imitation to sometimes violent opposition. But in the Lives the father’s role towards the young artist, be it for the latter’s education or for his training, is gradually taken up by his sponsors on the one hand and by his masters on the other hand. The structure of biography turns into the story of artistic transmission and development. The ambivalent relationship of the creative artist to his master is thus renewed – imitation vs. opposition or imitation vs. invention – but the fundamental question of multiple models also appears. This complex relation to the master(s) is nothing else than an expression of Giorgio Vasari’s mannerism.
