Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith; a passionate craftsman who was admired and resented by the most powerful political and artistic personalities in sixteenth-century Florence, Rome and Paris. He was also a murderer and a braggart, a shameless adventurer who at different times experienced both papal persecution and imprisonment, and the adulation of the royal court. Inn-keepers and prostitutes, kings and cardinals, artists and soldiers rub shoulders in the pages of his notorious autobiography: a vivid portrait of the manners and morals of both the rulers of the day and of their subjects. Written with supreme powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humor, this is an unrivalled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici

"Benvenuto Cellini is an incomparable source on the nature of art-making in sixteenth-century Italy. A leading artist who worked in gold, bronze, marble, and on paper, he was also the author of treatises, discourses, poems, and letters about his own work and the works of his contemporaries. Collectively, these works show Cellini to be an authority on the reigning ideas about the virtues and properties of artists' materials, and a vivid witness to the poetically charged processes involved in transforming these materials into meaningful forms. In this study, Michael Cole looks at the media in which Cellini worked and at the perspective his art and writings offer on these. Examining how Cellini and those around him viewed the act of sculpture in the late Renaissance, he situates Cellini's views in the context of the history of art, science, poetics, and ethics. Cole demonstrates Cellini's continuing relevance to the broader study of artistic theory and practice in his time."--Jacket

Cellini's autobiography has been called the most unflinching in all literature. His unhesitating confessions of hate, theft, murder, and sensuality make his memoirs perhaps the most sinful picture which a man ever drew of himself. Yet this autobiography is a valuable picture of its time
