If, as the famous saying goes, you really are what you eat, then Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was a consummate painter of the human soul. This artist was a master draughtsman whose finely wrought canvasses captured the imagination of his generation. In this fascinating book, Liana De Girolami Cheney takes a closer look at the critical history of Arcimboldo’s work, from his initial popularity and the tragic obscurity that followed his death, to the eventual, triumphant revival of his work and vision by Surrealist admirers of the 1920s.
Professor of Art History, Chairperson of the Department of Cultural Studies, and Coordinator of Art History, Interdisciplinary and Intercollegiate Studies at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Liana De Girolami Cheney specialized in the Renaissance and Mannerism in Italy.
