Vegetable Portraits



Giuseppe Arcimboldo Vertumnus, 1591 vs. Irving Penn 1996

I am full of admiration for Giuseppe Arcimboldo's radical violation against established art definitions of his time. Provocative and forward-thinking, his portraits maintain unquestioned relevance until the very today.
