The Art of Mathematics - Giuseppe Arcimboldo
The Art of Mathematics looks at a variety of artists and styles of art. For each artist we give a brief history of their life, links to examples of their work and ideas for mathematical activities to go with specific works. This article looks at the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, He painted a portrait of a Roman God that consisted entirely of fruit and vegetables! So many opportunities for cross curricular work here.
