Summary
"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
