This is my full collection of the 4 gigantic sculptures that are presently on display at the New York Botanical Gardens. These sculptures are by Philip Haas and were inspired by the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, an Italian renaissance painter who famously used fruits, flowers and twigs in his depiction of human heads.
The next in the series of sculptures by Philip Haas is Autumn. Autumn is characterised by ripe fruit (grapes, apples, blackberries) and vegetables (pumpkins, barley) ready for the picking.
These sculptures are inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo‘s paintings of “The Four Seasons”. Arcimboldo used fruits, vegetables and grains to creative identifiable and imaginative portraits.

Just outside the popular Prudential Center in Boston stands a tall bronze statue seemingly reaching for the sky. This statue, by Donald De Lue, was cast in Italy and installed in 1967.
