A fascinating insight into the life of Benvenuto Cellini, a 16th century sculptor, who was the greatest goldsmith ever known. His work remains the standard against which other goldsmiths are still measured today. He was both the friend and enemy of Cardinals, Popes and Kings. Exiled and thrown into prison, he became a fugitive when he escaped. He brawled, fought and quarrelled, and was himself responsible for several killings both on and off the battlefield. He had no compunction about cavorting with someone else's wife, mistress or with prostitutes. This highly researched book will both educate and entertain.
