Giuseppe ArcimboldoGiuseppe Arcimboldo was best known for creating portrait heads entirely up of objects. Here are some examples:

Vertumnus

   Four Seasons in One Head

He is described as a '16th century Mannerist' and the 'Grandfather of Surrealism'. However, I am looking for a more specific term used to describe this type of painting where subjects are composed of other objects upon closer inspection so that I hopefully take a look at other paintings in this style. An analogy would be how cubism was an offshoot of 3-dimensional art form and later became its own art movement.

Thank you:)
