Winter, Philip Haas after Arcimboldo

This rather strange piece of sculpture stood in front of the Palazzo Reale in Milan. Known as ‘winter’, the work was created by American artist and film maker Philip Haas. Inspiration was drawn from Guiseppe Arcimboldo, a court painter, festival designer and lover of the natural world. Arcimboldo’s ‘Four Seasons’ is a synthesis of vegetables, plant life and fruit. L’Inverno (winter), 1573, lends its name to the sculpture. The head is 4.6m high and created from fibreglass. Philip Haas first unveiled the exhibit in 2010 at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Washington.
