Vertumnus by Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Vertumnus is a painting by painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo produced in Milan c. 1590–1591. The painting is Arcimboldo’s most famous work and is a portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II re-imagined as Vertumnus, the Roman god of metamorphoses in nature and in life.
