❖ Ce jour là... / On this day... ❖

Le peintre italien Giuseppe Arcimboldo (Milan, 1527 - Milan, 1593) s’éteignait un 11 juillet en 1593. Célèbre pour ses portraits suggérés par des végétaux, animaux ou objets, il est notamment l’auteur de cette série sur les saisons.
Cette série des Saisons fut commandée en 1573 par l'empereur Maximilien II de Habsbourg pour être offerte à l'Electeur Auguste de Saxe dont les armoiries, les épées croisées de Meissen, sont brodées sur le manteau de l'Hiver. Elle reprend un cycle antérieur, dont ne subsistent que l'Eté et l'Hiver, daté de 1563 (Vienne, Kunsthistorisches Museum), offert en 1569 par Arcimboldo à Maximilien II, en même temps qu'une série des Quatre Eléments. L'encadrement de fleurs a été probablement ajouté sur les quatre tableaux au XVIIe siècle.

Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo (Milano, 1527 – Milano, 1593) died on a July 11th, in 1593. Famous for his portraits made of plants, animals or objects, he realised this serie on the seasons in particular.
The series of the Four Seasons was commissioned in 1573 by Emperor Maximilian II of Habsburg as a gift for Augustus, elector of Saxony, whose coat of arms, the crossed swords of Meissen, are embroidered on the robe of Winter. It followed a previous series, dated 1563 (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna), of which only Summer and Winter have survived. Arcimboldo gave this earlier series to Maximilian II, together with a series of the Four Elements, in 1569. The flowers around the edge were probably added to the four paintings in the 17th century.
