Summer by Arcimboldo
Call him creative, whimsical, or deranged. Milanese painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo was a stained-glass designer, fresco painter and, above all, outstanding court art director for Emperors Ferdinand I, Maximilian II and Rudolf II in 16th century Vienna and Prague. Arcimboldo´s portraits of human heads made up of vegetables, plants, fruits, sea creatures and tree roots, were greatly admired by his contemporaries and remain a source of fascination today.
