The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini
Delve into a fascinating period of art history with this autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, one of the most brilliant sculptors from the Renaissance period.
Cellini's autobiography gives an in-depth and intriguing account into his life and art and day-to-day Renaissance Italy. He describes his extreme artistic passion in his account of setting light to his furniture in order to create enough heat to cast Perseus and the Head of Medusa, one of his most well-know works.
Cellini's description of his imprisonment under a mad castellan, along with his escape and recapture in a cell of 'tarantulas and venomous worms' offer an attention-grabbing tale.
