A beautifully illustrated and well-written book for anyone needing an introduction to the life and works of this unique artist.
Arcimboldo is known for his surreal and symbolic portraits painted from imaginary assemblages of flora, fauna,
and objects related to a specific season or the role of the person portrayed. Highly recommended.
TAJ Books Mini Art series is a collection of compact books that capture the essence of each artist in the mere 95 pages that each volume contains. These small gems feature the best examples of the artists' works along with a brief summary of their lives. Each volume is written by Sandra Forty, a graduate of London University where she studied medieval and early modern history.
