Giuseppe Arcimboldo (sixteenth-century Mannerist)

  • Mannerism adopted some artistic elements from the High Renaissance and influenced other elements in the Baroque period. A Mannerist tended to show close relationships between human and nature.

    Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526 or 1527 – July 11, 1593)  was an Iralian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books.

    Students from Portugal made some creative art with Arcimboldo style, using fuits and vegetables and at the end they made a very tasty fruit salad:
