Additional Notes & Condition Report

These appear to date to the 17th century, thus probably after Arcimboldo's death but within a time period that can still be considered "of his school." All 4 are glue relined, with scattered areas of restoration. The allegories of Autumn and Summer each show long horizontal lines of restoration, as if to replace paint losses after the canvases had been rolled. In all four paintings, restoration has been carried out to a very high professional standard.
