New in ARTstor from UArts Visual Resources: Giuseppe Arcimboldi

Giuseppe Arcimboldi was a renowned Italian artist who first began painting while working for his father, artist Biagio Arcimboldo, in the mid 16th century.

"The Librarian" 1566

After working in several cathedrals, Arcimboldi became a painter of the royal court. The images seen here show some of his most noted works, which involved creating portraits out of various objects that pertained to each subject. These series include depictions of the four seasons, the elements, and more. The humorous and clever nature of his works served as an inspiration to several well-known writers of the 16th century, as well as to the works of future artists.  If you would like to see more works by Arcimboldi, click on an image to be taken directly to ARTstor.

New in ARTstor from UArts Visual Resources: John Baldessari

"Heel" 1986

John Baldessari is an American artist, born in 1931. He is a contemporary conceptual artist who has worked in almost every possible medium. The variety of subjects used in his art is perhaps one of the most intriguing qualities. His works range from simple, stark photographs, to plain printed text, to elaborate collages.  Each piece serves as a way to communicate a larger idea, and does so in a unique and visually appealing way.

While the image shown here is just one example of his earlier work, pieces made as late as 2006 are available on ARTstor. If you would like to see more works by Baldessari, click on the image to be taken directly to ARTstor. For more information about the artist, please visit Grove Art Online.

New in ARTstor from UArts Visual Resources: Georg Baselitz

"The-Oriental--Sick-Oriental--Vision--Upholder-of-the-Faith" 1959

Georg Baselitz, born in 1938, is a German artist. Baselitz was educated in art and began exhibiting work in 1961. Over the course of his career, his works and methods have lead to a heavy influence on German Neo-Expressionist art.

Intent on rebelling against the mainstream, Baselitz has drawn inspiration from various sources such as psychotic art and the art brut movement, enabling him to create very expressive and deeply symbolic works that were sometimes viewed as immoral or obscene. He has continued to evolve over the many years he has given to his craft, and in more recent years he has directed his efforts toward sculpture.

"Red-Green-Man--The-Red-Flag--The-Red-Green-Man" 1965

His work remains intense and powerful. If you would like to see more works by Baselitz, click on an image to be taken directly to ARTstor. For more information about the artist, please visit Grove Art Online.
