Details

Philip Haas, a contemporary artist and filmmaker, has created four monumental portrait busts titled The Four Seasons. Haas’s 15-foot-tall sculptures are three-dimensional interpretations of the Italian Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s (1526–1593) portrait series of the same name. As in Arcimboldo’s paintings, the physical features of the four sculpted figures are rendered in botanical forms appropriate to each season.
