Arcimboldo’s Serious Jokes and the Origins of Still-Life Painting

On the basis of recent discoveries this lecture offers an interpretation of some of the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526-1593), who in 2007 and 2008 will be the subject of a major exhibition in Paris and Vienna. Arcimboldo's relation to art theory, literary theory, humanism, and natural history are treated in view of the creation of his invertible heads and their place in the development of still-life painting.
