Giuseppe Arcimboldo (also spelled Arcimboldi; 1527 - July 11, 1593) was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books - that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject.

#6 MIJN MENING: Het mooie in het bloemen gebruik is dat het laat zien dat het hoofd bloeit. De borst en nek zijn voornamelijk groen en onkruid, terwijl het hoofd mooi met bloemkoppen is gevult. En omdat bloemblaadjes zoveel kleuren kunnen hebben word het meteen ook een heel kleurrijk beeld.   Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Spring, 1563.

Arcimboldo  //   Arcimboldo is known as a 16th-century Mannerist. A transitional period from 1520 to 1590, Mannerism adopted some artistic elements from the High Renaissance and influenced other elements in the Baroque period. Arcimboldo also tried to show his appreciation of nature through his portraits.

For a time, Arcimboldo painted portraits in Prague in the court of the Holy Roman Empire. Here is a portrait of Rudolf II, the Holy Roman Emperor at the time, painted as Vertumnus, Roman god of the seasons.
