The Four Seasons
The Society of the Four Arts
The Four Arts presents The Four Seasons (2010) by contemporary American artist Philip Haas. The group of painted fiberglass sculptures are inspired by the portrait series by the Italian Mannerist Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526/1527–1593). As in Arcimboldo’s whimsical paintings, the physical features of the four figures are rendered in floral, fruit and vegetables appropriate to each season.
The exhibit is featured in the Pannill Pavilion in The Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden. The gardens are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no charge to visit the Garden or view the sculptures. In accordance with CDC recommendations, visitors are asked to wear face masks and respect social distancing.
