"Vertumno" by Giuseppe Arcimboldo
Mannerist painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo presents a vivid reimagining of the genre of portraiture in these wild works. A veritable celebration of nature and the natural world, the faces are composed entirely of organic elements like plants, flowers, fruits and the like, produced for a patron with a passion for botany and zoology. You may never look at a pear or an ear of corn quite the same way after viewing these portraits!
This one is entitled “Vertumno” painted in 1590, featured at the Skokloster Castle in Skokloster, Sweden.
