About the Author

Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571) was a celebrated goldsmith and distinguished sculptor whose powerful talent can still be seen in such works as his bronze statue of Perseus and his gold salt cellar made for Francis 1. He worked for a variety of patrons, including Popes Clement VII and Paul III.

George Bull is an author and journalist who has translated 6 volumes for Penguin Classics, including The Book of the Courtier by Castiglione, Vasari's Lives of the Artists and The Prince by Machiavelli.
