The Life of Benvenuto Cellini
by John Addington Symonds

ISBN: 9780714833644
PUBLISHER: Phaidon Press Ltd
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 582
DIMENSIONS: 186mmX110mmX18mm 295grams

This work is the only known autobiography of a Renaissance artist. It describes not only the artist's life at the Papal Court in Rome and at the Royal Court of France but makes very vivid historical writing, including, as it does, an eye-witness acount of the Sack of Rome in 1527. Cellini also gives us details of his career as a sculptor and goldsmith who restored Etruscan sculptures in Florence, made jewellery for the Popes and beautiful trinkets and ornaments for the French Court, such as the salt-cellar for Francis I. Many of his contemporaries such as Michelangelo are described by him in an intimate manner. The illustrations, which include all Cellini's works that have been preserved, as well as scenes from Renaissance life, were chosen by Sir John Pope-Hennessy, who died in 1994.
