The Giants of Arcimboldo by Philip Haas

20 May to 30 September

Four monumental sculptures by Philip Haas will be on display in the Château des Baux-de-Provence.

More than five metres high and weighing over 400 kilos, each of the sculptures of the giant heads are inspired by The Four Seasons paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527–1583). 

Winter was the first sculpture made in the series and was exhibited in 2010 and 2011 in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Piazza del Duomo in Milan, and the gardens of the Château of Versailles.

Since 2012, Philip Haas’s complete Four Seasons installation has traveled from one exceptional site to another.

Philip Haas, born in 1954, is a contemporary American artist and film-maker. He has received a  fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation for his documentaries on artists such as Gilbert and George, David Hockney, Aboriginal ground painters of central Australia, and gravestone carvers of southern Madagascar.

He was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for his feature film Angels & Insects.
