The Four Seasons
May 4 through September 12
The Four Seasons, by American artist and filmmaker Philip Haas, is a series of large-scale fiberglass sculptures inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s four 1563 Italian Renaissance paintings: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Haas’s twenty-first-century interpretation translates the historic paintings into three-dimensional form and connects us to nature’s annual cycle of death and renewal. Each bust showcases a medley of vegetation associated with a specific time of year.
Please enjoy Haas’s four large sculptures located outside on Crystal Bridges’ grounds,
as well as four smaller versions of the sculptures (maquettes) on view inside the Museum.
