Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593)

He was born in Milan, Italy. When he became famous, he left Italy to work for emperors in Vienna and Prague. His style is called Mannerism and shows how some artists broke away from the classical ideals of the Renaissance to experiment with new

ideas.

Arcimboldo created abstract portraits of people and ideas made from everyday objects. One of his best-known series

portrayed the seasons.

Guiseppe Arcimboldo's "Spring"Arcimboldo painted "Spring" (left)

in 1573. He shows spring as a young woman made of spring flowers and foliage.

Arcimboldo also painted portraits called Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Other

portraits he created were about air, water, fire, earth, and war. He also made portraits

of different people like a gardener, a librarian, a jurist and a cook.

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)Like his friend Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) was a Post-Impressionist who explored the expressionist uses of colour.

He was afraid that modern techniques and tools were depriving art of emotion. He moved to Tahiti to create a new style

that conveyed such passion.

When he returned to France, critics called his paintings "savage" and "barbaric," but Gauguin was proud of such comments. He felt that only a simple, "barbaric" style would capture the unspoiled people and

nature he found in Tahiti.

This painting, Matamoe, shows the intense colors he used during his stay in

Tahiti.

Georges Seurat (1859-1891)

• Seurat was born into a wealthy family in Paris.

• He was French painter who founded a painting style called pointillism. He began painting in the style of Impressionism but soon became more interested in scientific color theory.

• He is famous for using little dabs or points of pure bright color to paint. When viewed from a distance, the eye mixes the colors together.
