During the half-century following Michelangelo's death in 1564 the graceful and seductive style of Giambologna dominated Italian sculpture, and copies of his bronze statuettes spread his influence throughout Europe. For compositional subtlety, sensuous tactile values and technical virtuosity his sculpture is unrivalled. Charles Avery's major critical study is the first full-scale monograph on the artist to be published for many years. Comprehensive in scope, it covers his entire oeuvre, with chapters on marble statuary, bronze statuettes, devotional and narrative works, portraits, animal sculpture, fountains and equestrian monuments. Style, technique, working methods and many critical aspects of Giainbologna's work are fully discussed, including his contribution to Mannerism and his place in the wider European tradition. The book concludes with a summary catalogue of all Giambologna's known works.
