Arcimboldo // Arcimboldo is known as a 16th-century Mannerist. A transitional period from 1520 to 1590, Mannerism adopted some artistic elements from the High Renaissance and influenced other elements in the Baroque period. Arcimboldo also tried to show his appreciation of nature through his portraits.
