This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy on a high-quality paper (235 gsm) that is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions.
“Autumn,” a remarkable human face formed entirely from seasonal fruit and vegetables, was painted by Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527 – 1593), and is displayed at France’s Louvre. Arcimboldo originally designed stained-glass windows and frescoes with his father at the Milan Cathedral, and later served as the court painter for Emperors Ferdinand I, Maximilian II and Rudolph II. During this period, he painted his fantastical, allegorical faces made entirely of produce, books and animals. After his death, Arcimboldo was forgotten until the Surrealists rediscovered and celebrated his works.
