The Four Seasons

What a dreary May bank holiday! It's more like February. So here's a summery thought to cheer us up. From 20 June to 16 September the gardens of the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London will exhibit four 15-foot-high fibreglass sculptures by Philip Haas, inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo's The Four Seasons. Giuseppe (1527-1593) painted fantastical "portraits" made of fruits, fungi, vegetables, flowers, fish and books. Shown is his Winter (1573) owned by the Musée du Louvre in Paris. CLICK to view his Complete Works website. Entry to the Dulwich Picture Gallery's permanent collection is £5 for adults, £4 for silver surfers (CLICK). Special exhibitions cost more.

If that were a painting of me I'd sue; it's an insult.

It's rather clever, but not my favourite art. Maybe you'd look better as Spring.
