Giuseppe Arcimboldo | Drawing

Giuseppe Arcimboldo, also spelled Arcimboldi (1527-1593) was an Italian painter best known for  working in the Mannerism style and 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 recognisable likeness of the portrait subject.
For biographical notes and painting works by Arcimboldi see Part 1 - Painting.
