Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an imaginative Italian painter best known for creating portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, animals and books. In 1562 he became the court portraitist to Maximilian II at the Habsburg court in Vienna, and later, to his son Rudolf II, both of whom seem to have much liked Arcimboldo's extraordinary portraits. He was also the court decorator, costume designer, and general art expert. Click on any picture for a larger view and more details.
