Arcimboldo’s Four Elements

Water (1566).

After yesterday’s post it’s necessary—mandatory, even—to follow it with a similar series of paintings by Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527–1593). For my own attempt at the Arcimboldo style, see this post.

    No salamanders in the Fire painting? Tut.

    Yes, Fire is the odd-one-out in this series as well. It’s a tough one on the animal level, after salamanders and dragons there’s not a lot left to work with, is there?
