Giuseppe Arcimboldo (ca. 1527 - 93) ~ Notes

The eccentric renaissance painter: an artist at the Habsburg court, famous for his artistic discovery of the composite head.

For me the grand godfather of Surrealism. The man who was the man 400 years before Dali was wowing the world. His work was indeed rediscovered in the early part of the 20th century by artists such as Dali and even just a cursory knowledge of Surrealism would reveal his influence.

"Genius" is a work often oversused in art but here it is applicable. He was so far ahead of his time we have still to have caught up.

From Leonardo to Dali - Arcimboldo is the link.

About Parastone

First things first: there are no better Arcimboldo sculptures/figures than these Parastone figures anywhere. The attention to detail & the 3d effect breathes new life in the work of the masters.

Parastone was originally part of the famous Borzo art dealership which was founded in 1880 and it primarily specialised in restoring religious art. When, alongside the latter activity, an increasing number of sculptures were produced after own designs, it was decided – in 1963 – to found Parastone as an independent company.

For over 50 years now, Parastone has successfully designed decorative sculptures, partly of timeless classic beauty, partly aligned with current trends. The museum images entitled Mouseion constitute an important part of the collection. Alongside exact copies of important works of art, Mouseion also consists of three-dimensional interpretations of paintings and sketches by many artists ranging from Jheronimus Bosch to Salvador Dali.

Parastone is located in ’s-Hertogenbosch, a historic city in the Netherlands and the birthplace of famous Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch.

Arcimboldo and Parastone: what a magical combination.

As of 2014, I found that amazon now stock many of the Arcimboldo Parastone sculptures. As it is impossible to compete with their buying power you may well find the sculpture cheaper there. I have put links to their US site below which will take you to their Arcimboldo sculpture pages.

If I can ever compete with their prices then I will stock them again as I do love these sculptures and they deserve to be owned by as many people as possible. I also miss those conversations with fellow Parastone admirers who are adding a sculpture or starting a collection. For now it's enough to present them as beautifully as I possibly can or am able to do.
