vertumnus


Vertumnus by Guiseppe Arcimboldo

We're learning Renaissance and Mannerist art in my Art & Architecture class, and I just had to share this incredibly innovative portrait of Emperor Rudolph II (of the Habsburgs, who, did you know, ruled Prague in the 1500's?). Perfect for October, as autumn (sadly) succumbs to winter. Temperatures are in the low 40's this week with lots of chilly winds -- I'm afraid to leave my room! Hope you are all staying warm. :)
