Four Sculptures Representing the Four Seasons by Philip Haas at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx

Four Seasons is an installation of four sculptures, each standing more than 15 feet high - Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter by contemporary American artist and filmmaker Philip Haas at the Concservatory Courtyard of the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. Haas was inspired by the 16th-century Italian Renaissance artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who painted eccentric, yet scientifically accurate, composite heads composed of fake flowers, ivy, moss, fungi, vegetables, fruit, bark, and branches. Each human portrait represent an individual season. The exhibit continues through October 27.
