Title

Porträtt av Kejsar Rudolf II som Vertumnus(årstidsguden), målat av den italienska renässans konstnären Giuseppe Arcimboldo 1591. | Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Description

    • Vertumnus var årstidsväxlingarnas gud hos romarna. Porträttet är en hyllning till den habsburgska, tysk-romerska kejsaren, som bodde i Prag. När den svenska armen genom ett överraskande angrepp intar och plundrar den Lilla sidan i Prag 1648, föll denna och hundratals andra målningar i svenskarnas händer. På Skokloster finns målningen först 1845. Bröstbild, fas vänster. Porträttet sammansatt av frukter, grönsaker och blommor. Förgylld, profilerad ram med pastellagerankor och palmett i hörnen, bredd 92 mm. Emperor Rudolf II as Vertumnus, the Roman god of the seasons, growth, plants and fruit. The portrait is meant as an imperial allegory, corresponding with Arcimboldos series of the seasons, with the Emperor here seen as ruler of them all. The variety of flowers and fruits from all season signify that a golden era has returned under the Emperors rule. After the death of Emperor Rudolf II in 1612 the painting stayed at Prague where it is recorded in the inventory of the imperial collections in 1621 and 1635. It was later taken as war booty by the Swedish army in 1648.
