Georges Suerat & Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Giuseppe Arcimboldo & Georges Suerat

What cheem words i have here today.....=) .... these are actually the names of 2 artists who were introduced to my P1 art class this term. 

Arcimboldo was an Italian artist born in Milan in 1527 and died in 1593 at the age of 66. He spent the last 25 years of his life as an Austrian court painter for Emperors Maximilian and Rudolph II.

His paintings are interesting to view because instead of painting them as realistic portraits, the faces are composed of fruits and vegetables. 



Georges Suerat was a French artist who created the style of art of using only dots known as pointillism.

Pointillism is the art of applying dots of color next to each other so that from a distance the colors can be blended together (visual mixing) by the person viewing the work of art.  For example, blue dots of paint spread among yellow dots of paint will appear green from a distance.  

Sunday Afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte
One of Georges Suerat's most famous piece of work which took him 2 years to complete, dot by dot, dot after dot.
