Description
While creating his famous bronze of David and Goliath, Donatello's passion for his enormously beautiful model and part time rent boy, Agnolo, ignites a dangerous jealousy that ultimately leads to murder. Luca, the complex and conflicted assistant, will sacrifice all to save Donatello, even his master's friend--the great patron of art, Cosimo de' Medici. John L'Heureux's long-awaited novel delivers both a monumental and intimate narrative of the creative genius, Donatello, at the height of his powers. With incisive detail, L'Heureux beautifully renders the master sculptor's forbidden homosexual passions, and the artistry that enthralled the powerful and highly competitive Medici and Albizzi families. The finished work is a sumptuous historical novel that entertains while it delves deeply into both the sacred and the profane within one of the Italian Renaissance's most consequential cities, fifteenth century Florence.

display_descriptionIn fifteenth-century Florence, young and beautiful Agnolo does whatever he must to survive. When he isn't living with a soldier, he provides company for lonely men. But when his soldier is sent to war, Agnolo finds work as a model for the great artist Donato di Betto Bardi-otherwise known as Donatello. While creating his famous bronze of David standing on the head of Goliath, Donatello develops a desire for Agnolo that ignites a dangerous jealousy. The artist's assistant, the complex and conflicted Luca, is determined to save Donatello and put an end to the cattivo Agnolo. With incisive detail, John L'Heureux beautifully renders the master sculptor's creative genius, and the artistry that enthralled the powerful and highly competitive Medici and Albizzi families.
