At RHS Harlow Carr, there is currently an exhibition of The Four Seasons sculptures by American artist and film-maker Philip Haas. These huge pieces, fifteen feet high, are inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo's renaissance paintings of the four seasons. (See HERE) I was slightly disappointed to find they are made of fibre glass rather than natural materials, but I suppose natural materials would rot and wouldn't be easy to transport and assemble. The pieces have been displayed in London and New York, amongst other places.
My favourite, by a long way, was 'Winter', above - comfortable in its mature woodland setting and with a truly imperious expression.
'Spring' (above) literally has rosy cheeks - and 'Summer' (below) is a harvest of fruit and vegetables. Try as I did, I couldn't track down 'Autumn', despite walking round the majority of the huge garden estate.
