The Four Seasons by the American artist Philip Haas, is a monumental, outdoor sculpture set inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s paintings of the same name: Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall form 14-foot human busts from vegetables; fruit; branches; leaves; ivy; and moss. Since The Four Seasons debuted to great acclaim in 2012, the exhibition has been on a five-year, nine-venue tour of museums and gardens in the US and Europe, including New York Botanical Garden; Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Gardens of Versailles; and Piazza del Duomo in Milan.

Haas is an internationally-renowned contemporary American artist and filmmaker, who, by marrying sculpture, painting, film, and architecture, has fashioned a unique visual vocabulary all his own. He describes his process as “sculpting by thinking.”
