ARCIMBOLDO, Giuseppe
(b. 1526, Milano, d. 1593, Milano)

Scenes from the Old Testament

1549
Stained glass window
Cathedral, Milan

The stained glass windows in the Cathedral of Milan were executed after the cartoons by Giuseppe Arcimboldo and his father, Biagio Arcimboldo. The payment by the Cathedral for his designs is the first known record of Giuseppe's activity as an artist, and it demonstrates that he was already legally adult in that year, and therefore over twenty.
