4 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Arcimboldo, a 16th century Italian artist [working in Vienna and Prague] is an artist with an indisputable claim, he single mindedly pursued his invention, the so-termed "composite head", applying it to numerous and varied subjects. Apt and witty combinations of animals, fish, fruit, vegetables, and a variety of other objects, all painted with meticulous realism, are fitted together into head and shoulder figures that sometimes have the look of portraits. He also devised compositions that can be hung upside down as well as right side up. Arcimboldo's major works were his numerous series on allegorical themes, especially the Four Seasons and the Four Elements."--Amazon

Arcimboldo : 1526-1593 by Giuseppe Arcimboldi ( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and German and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Famous all over the world for his portraitsan illustrated composite of plants, fruit, and animals combined to create the illusion of a human form Arcimboldo still remains, paradoxically, a painter shrouded in mystery. This important monograph reveals the eclecticism of one of the most fertile and lively minds of the Mannerist period, placing him in the cultural context in which he lived and worked. Admired during his life, Arcimboldo fell into oblivion after his death in 1593. His original, eccentric works have been little understoodrediscovered at the beginning of the 20th century by the Surrealists, who considered him a precursor of Modern art. His work has enjoyed a particular revival of interest again over the last twenty years. In addition to the artists anamorphic portraits, this volume includes an important selection of Arcimboldos paintings (many previously unpublished), tapestries, drawings, and illustrations created throughout his life, from his training in Lombardy to his time at the Hapsburg court. This volume will enable readers to discover and appreciate the scope of the great Arcimboldos extraordinary work. - Publisher

"Tanto regolata e coronata dal successo fu la vita di Giuseppe Arcimboldo, quanto accidentato e censurato dall'oblio il destino postumo delle sue opere. Pittore tra i più amati, lusingati e imitati del suo tempo, svolse onorata carriera al servizio di arcivescovi e imperatori; i suoi dipinti subirono invece il flusso di alterne vicissitudini, andarono in gran parte dispersi e confusi nella massa delle modeste e anonime imitazioni. Intravista come "curiosità" e relegata nella sottospecie dei "capricci e bizzarie" dal gusto dominante, la sua opera fu pressoché ignorata dalla letteratura artistica ufficiale, o citata solo accidentalmente, spesso a sproposito." (Corinna Ferrari)
