Giuseppe Arcimboldo: Picture "Winter" - from "The Four Seasons"

For the first time, Arcimboldo 1573 designed his famous "composite heads" in for the sieres "The Four Seasons", in which he composed the portraits of the season characteristic plants and plant parts. The pictures contain numerous allusions, such as the House of Habsburg, and at the same time they are an allegory on the four ages - the four elements of fire (summer), water ( winter), air (spring) and earth (autumn). This series is located in the collection of the Louvre Museum.

A new technique was used for the reproduction: the fine art LUVRÉE process is a quantum leap in the art of printing, which allows a three-dimensional painting print in unprecedented detail and brilliance. Finely crafted, finely engraved embossing dies masterfully manufactured in months creating a sensational realistic image with pasty brush strokes into the smallest image structures. The three-dimensional surface is not to distinguish from a original paintings!

Original: oil on canvas, Musée du Louvre, Paris.

For a brilliant, authentic reproduction, the painting was transferred in Fine Art LUVRÉE process directly on artist canvas and mounted like an original oil painting on a wooden frame. The elegant solid wood framing with shadow model completes the look perfectly. Limited edition 499 pieces. Size 42 x 46 cm.

Fantastic talent and eccentric portraits with much humor made Guiseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) one of the most bizarre Renaissance artists with the world fame. The composition of his portraits in which he composed famous contemporaries with the help of flowers, fruits, leaves, fish and books, is unique in its kind. The surprising collages of Arcimboldo radiate humor and irony, and were extremely popular half a millennium ago.

Thanks to his fanciful depictions Arcimboldo became one of the models for the surrealists of the 20th century. For example, Salvador Dalí interpreted some motives of the Renaissance master in his own works.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.
