Art History: The Arcimboldo Effect--Contemporary Art

In the last of a 3-part series, we will look at the continuing influence of Giuseppe Arcimboldo on contemporary artists. We will explore the ideas of transformation and double meaning in the fascinating works of artists like Shigeo Fukuda, a Japanese artist and designer who has created amazing works including a series of provocative shadow art pieces. We will also look at Arcimboldo-inspired works by Hungarian artist Istvan Orosz, contemporary Mexican Surrealist Octavio Ocampo, and others.

Explore Italy with Two Wandering Women

Two Wandering Women set out to explore Italy from the central Umbrian region, then south to the Amalfi Coast. Their travels take you from the religious icons and backstreets of Assisi to the underground caves or Orvieto. Cross the narrow land bridge to walk the ancient byways o the deserted village of Civita Di Bagnoregio - travel writer, Rick Steves’ favorite hillside village in Italy. Visit the coastal towns and villages of Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi, and Ravello where medieval villas, Byzantine architecture and ruins of Roman Emperor Tiberius’ last refuge make history come alive. Further south, the ancient temples of Paestum are the best examples of Greek architecture outside of Athens. A fascinating look at the famous volcanic ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum is included along with a visit to the Eternal City of Rome.
