Arcimboldo: Nature into Art

Enter the playful and whimsical world of 16th century artist Giuseppe Arcimbaldo, who worked as a court entertainer in Vienna and Prague. His incredible attention to detail coupled with a seemingly limitless imagination have created allegorical masterpieces that still amaze art lovers 400 years on. In this exhibition — the first of its kind in Japan — visitors will be able to get a greater insight in Arcimboldo’s multifaceted skills and duties as a renaissance art director.
