Cellini and the Principles of Sculpture by Michael W. Cole

Book Description

Benvenuto Cellini is an incomparable source on the nature of art-making in sixteenth century Italy. A practicing 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 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 of transforming these materials into meaningful forms. In this study, Michael Cole analyzes the media in which Cellini worked as well as his theoretical writings. 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.

Books By Author Michael W. Cole

Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Art of the Figure by Michael W. Cole Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Art of the Figure, Hardback (January 2015)

In late 1504 and early 1505, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti were both at work on commissions they had received to paint murals in Florence's City Hall. This book looks again at the one moment when Leonardo and Michelangelo worked side by side.

New History of Italian Renaissance Art by Michael W. Cole New History of Italian Renaissance Art, Hardback (January 2012)

Introduces Italian Renaissance art. This book tells the story of art in the great centres of Rome, Florence and Venice while profiling a range of other cities and sites throughout Italy. It presents the classic canon of Renaissance painting and sculpture, offering coverage of architecture, decorative and domestic arts, and print media.

Ambitious Form by Michael W. Cole Ambitious Form, Hardback (December 2010)

Describes the transformation of Italian sculpture during the neglected half-century between the death of Michelangelo and the rise of Bernini. This book follows the Florentine careers of three major sculptors - Giambologna, Bartolomeo Ammanati, and Vincenzo Danti - as they negotiated the politics of the Medici court and eyed one another's work.

Idol in the Age of Art by Michael W. Cole Idol in the Age of Art, Hardback (February 2009)

The idol has traditionally been regarded as the anti-image, the thing in opposition to which 'good' art was defined. This volume shows how both its embrace and its consequences expanded in unprecedented ways in the years after 1500.
