Guiseppe Arcimboldo

Are you familiar with Guiseppe Arcimboldo's art? He was a painter at the end of the Renaissance, who painted for King Frederic I, of the Hapsburg Court (1562 and on). Arcimboldo was from Milan, Italy and quite famous in his day.

I love looking at his work and picking out the components that make up the portraits and wonder how this would look sculpturally? He gives new meaning to apple cheeks, doesn't he?

Look up more of his work. I think the creativity of this artist is notable. Non traditional and interesting, it makes you look deeper into his work to see what is really there.

Something most artists wish for as well....
See you tomorrow!
