内容紹介

The magnificent biography of Florentine goldsmith, sculptor and artist Benvenuto Cellini is presented here complete.

Although encouraged by his family to take up music as a youth, the young Cellini had other ideas. At first apprenticing as a goldsmith with his father, it was during his reckless teenage years that Cellini was banished from Florence's borders for taking part in an intense street brawl with his friends.

This temporary ban forced the teenage Cellini into travelling around Italy; he would live for a time in the town of Siena, then Bologna, and finally onto the great and ancient capital of Rome when he was nineteen. Putting his early training in metalwork to use, the young Cellini quickly demonstrated great talent in the moulding of silver. In Renaissance Rome there was no shortage of demand for fine quality handiwork, and Cellini's living was soon secure thanks to commissions from figures such as the Bishop of Salamanca.

Together with the stories of his wayward youth and ascendance to acclaim as an artisan and sculptor, Cellini describes his travels, his associates, his romances and the locales he settles in. Much of the biography is full of opinions on matters of art and society which Cellini attempts to justify with reasoned argument. Some bizarre and fantastical events - such as the author conjuring a great legion of devils inside the Roman Colosseum after a favourite mistress of Cellini's was led away by her mother, lend liveliness to the text.

The biography concludes quite suddenly with the final journey Cellini made to Pisa, which was another of his favoured cities. For its style, humour, and undoubted value as a history and commentary upon the Italian Renaissance, Benvenuto Cellini's biography is considered the most valuable of the era.

This translation to English is by John Addington Symonds, an acclaimed literary critic and scholar of Renaissance Italian culture. Symonds was himself an authoritative author of several biographies regarding prominent Italian figures of the 14th to 16th centuries.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Not the least fascinating aspect of this great autobiography is how incredibly picaresque it is 2015/1/4

Not the least fascinating aspect of this great autobiography is how incredibly picaresque it is, and swashbuckling. Just one sword fight after another, among other things. Even though it's fifty years earlier, this is recognizably the same Europe Don Quixote wanders through in Spain, and the same pre-modern world that Moll Flanders and Tom Jones later inhabit. If you think things seem too wild to believe in early novels, just read Cellini's life and you'll see that that's just the way things used to be. Steven Pinsker shocked people recently with a book arguing that history has actually gotten LESS violent over the centuries--a claim people obsessed with the 20thC's Great War, WWII, and the Holocaust, just for starters, found rather hard to credit. But if you read Cellini, you'll discover that modern violence is nothing compared to the nonstop violence and constant wars of the pre-modern world. The brutality, follies, and near madness of human life seem to have been with us always. Anyway, a great book.

5つ星のうち 4.0 If you are interested in Italian Rennaisance art this is a must read! 2014/6/24

I had read this many years ago and recommended it highly to my brother-in-law in Argentina during a recent visit. He had recently been to Italy and was overwhelmed with the art works he saw. What makes this book so compelling is that it is one of the very first autobiographies ever written, and by a person working as an artist contemporary to DaVinci, Michaelangelo, and so many of the most famous artists of the period. It isn't the best written book in the world, and Cellini is not hesitant about singing his own praises, but it is so interesting to have a window on that very important period for art in history. Another very interesting book, written by a contemporary of the greats was written by a lesser artist of the period named Giorgio Vasari ,is called "Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors and Architects".

5つ星のうち 3.0 An entertaining book marred by religiosity 2014/2/9
投稿者 DouglasC - (Amazon.com)

Cellini's portraits of the popes' and Italian princes' petty avarice is revealing. They paid him for his work with promises. He is then viciously ill-treated and imprisoned. His despair during this is potently articulated. The callous and indifferent power of the pope and warden was absolute. The venal treatment from other tradesmen is also well described. His description of pouring Perseus is gripping: he was short on bronze and had to add pewter; despite pouring during a rainstorm his roof caught afire. However the book is marred by Cellini's religiosity. He sees through the individual popes, but not the institution. He is not reflective, and attributes to god, and not to his genius, his survival in an an arbitrary and capricious world. John Addington Symonds' footnotes are helpful in revealing Cellini's sexual life; which, of course, was not in the Autobiography itself.

An intriguing look into an artist's life in Renaissance Italy. Benvenuto one of the artistic masters of the Renaissance era . he will tell you all about his successes and failures . His patrons are sometimes unreliable and he feels under appreciated. His rivals are envious, jealous and almost always insulting. He is often diven to extreme measures to defend his reputation and honor. It is a facinating story of the life of a facinating man.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Wild times in a wild time 2004/6/24
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)

Benvenuto Cellini was a great sculptor of the 16th century. He was not, by trade, a writer, and his rough prose and sprawling narrative testify to that.
But what he lacks in writing skill, he more than makes up for in personality, so much so that his brilliant life and gusto for living bursts through the awkward form.
Cellini, it is clear, loves life -- he leaves nothing out when telling it, and so he represents very well what it must have been like to be one of the great artists of the Italian Renaissance in the patronage of the papacy, the great Medici family, and Francis I (who supported Da Vinci in his last years).
We meet Lorenzo de Medici, Cosimo, Francis I, Cosimo's wife who needs Cellini to help her get a pearl necklace, competitors, thieves, Popes, and beautiful women, whom Cellini kept for modeling and for "company."
And we get to hear Cellini discussing the design and creation of classic works that still exist today, like the salt cellar, the Nymph of Fountainbleau, and his masterpiece, the statue Perseus, which he describes as so astonishing to the people of the day that they composed sonnets about it and posted them up all over Florence.
Cellini recounts his many affairs, duels, scrapes, imprisonments, and commissions, one adventure after another, so that his whole life sweeps by in a grand and vibrant portrait. He always seems to come out on top too, which makes you wonder if he's telling the whole truth, but nonetheless Cellini's autobiography is a thrilling read and filled with life in a time when all the world was stirring with art and passion.
