Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571) is the author of one of the most celebrated autobiographies ever written and the sculptor of one of the most famous of all statues, Perseus with the Head of Medusa in Florence. He was also a pre-eminent goldsmith. In this biography, Sir John Pope-Hennessy endeavours to "correlate a body of works of art with the human personality by which they were produced." Cellini is based on the well-justified assumption that the Life (his autobiography) is a factual record punctuated by passages of fantasy. The photographs, many of which have been commissioned from two art photographers of high repute, bring sensitive perspectives to the great works and marvellous detail to the medallic work. They reveal the superb breadth of Cellini's artistry.
