Giuseppe Arcimboldo was born in 1527 in Milan and died in 1593 in Prague (Czech Republic).

His more original works are portraits compound with flowers, fruits, vegetables, fishes, poultry or miscellaneous items, which is a style unique in the whole history of painting.

He is the creator of mannerism and one of the precursors of surrealism.

Trained in the studio of his father, he begins his career drawing tapestries and stained-glass windows.

In 1562, he joins the Vienna imperial court as portrait painter and copyist, and when two years latter Maximilian is coronated Emperor of the Roman-Germanic Empire he becomes his official painter.


Besides painting, Arcimboldo dedicated to architecture and garden decoration.
On this last subject, he is the inventor of water effects which will be latter used in Versailles.

He painted two versions of the four Seasons cycle, the first one in 1563 and the scond one in 1573 for Maximilian emperor which differs from the preceeding one by the addition of a garland of flowers and fruits on the border.

His works are mainly located in the Louvre Museum in Paris and in Wien (Austria) in the
Kunsthistorisches Museum.i

The exhibition dedicated to Arcimboldo at the Luxemburg Museum of Paris (from september 15th 2007 to january 13th 2008) allowed the general public in France to know him as several television channels reported on it.

Michel Mancini has just finished his first copy of Arcimboldo.
