Guiseppe Arcimboldo, 1527 - 1593"...perfect in his uniqueness, as are only the great".

The picture of Summer,
which is now in the Kunsthisorisches Museum in Vienna,
forms part of Arcimboldo's first series of the Four Seasons.
Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for
creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects
as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books - that is,
he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way
that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject.
