Shadows of Time
Giambologna (1529–1606) is widely regarded as the most important European sculptor between Michelangelo and Bernini. Although we know a great deal about his success, we know little of Giambologna's formative years in Italy, before he rose to prominence. How did he come to achieve his status as the preeminent sculptor of his time? This volume investigates this question and retraces Giambologna's winding path to success.
