Giuseppe Arcimboldo
Spring
A Renaissance "man" composed entirely from spring flowers and leaves. Though he appears realistic at a glance, his coat is made of lettuce, violet leaves, and other greens; his ruff is made of white flowers; his cheeks are roses; his lips are cherries, and so on. He is one of four seasons. We also offer Summer, Autumn, and Winter in compatible sizes. (1573)
Summer
A Renaissance "man" composed entirely from summer fruits, vegetables, wheat, and leaves. Though he is somewhat realistic at a glance, his coat is made of wheat, his nose is a cucumber, his cheek is a peach, his hat includes melons, eggplant an ear of corn, cherries, raspberries, figs, onions, and their associated leaves, and his teeth are peas in a pod. He is one of four seasons: we also offer Spring, Autumn, and Winter in compatible sizes. (1573)
Autumn
A Renaissance "man" composed entirely from autumn fruits, vegetables, grains, and leaves. Though he seems realistic at a glance, his coat is made of barrel staves, his nose is a potato, his chin is a pomegranite, his mustache is a chestnut burr, his hair is bunches of grapes, his hat is a pumpkin, his beard is millet, his ear is a mushroom, and so on. He is one of four seasons: we also offer Spring, Summer, and Winter in compatible sizes. (1573)
Winter
A Renaissance "man" composed entirely of winter plants. Though he seems fairly realistic at a glance, his head and neck are a gnarled and broken tree, with broken branches forming his ear and nose. The old man's coat is made from woven straw, a pair of lemons with their leaves make his cravat, his lips are bracket fungus, and the bare branches of the tree and ivy represent his balding head. He is one of four seasons: we also offer Spring, Summer, and Autumn in compatible sizes. (1573)
The Librarian
A "man" made from books and items from the book culture of the times. His cape is a library curtain (used to partition study rooms and protect books from light and dust), his spectacles are book-chest keys, his beard is made of animal tail dusters, and his fingers, grasping the books acquisitively, are bookmarks. The painting mocks those who acquire books for the sake of ownership rather than reading, and is thought to particularly lampoon Wolfgang Lazius, the Hapsburgs' historiographer, who was reputed to steal books when he couldn't get them another way. (about 1562)
 
Margaret Armstrong
