About Giuseppe Arcimboldo illusion art
Arcimboldo is known for his ability to create optical illusions in his paintings such as pareidolia. Spring is qualified as pareidolia. Indeed, it features a portrait but made with flowers. Some of his other paintings create imaginative impressions such as:
- Way up, the painting represents a basket filled with autumn fruits, a still-life painting, that symbolizes the passing of time.
- Way down, this oil on canvas becomes a portrait. What a fancy word for such an amusing concept!Arcimboldo technique was remarkable and is still admired around the world.
