In Piazzetta Reale, ad accogliere i visitatori della mostra su Arcimboldo, ci sarà «Winter», una scultura in vetroresina alta 5 metri dell’artista americano Philip Haas, ispirata all’«Inverno». «Volevo realizzare un’opera che allo stesso tempo fosse un omaggio a un grande, e avesse un valore di per sé, offrendo una visione in 3D. Ma non è stato affatto facile: dal primo progetto elaborato sul computer al suo completamento ci sono voluti sei mesi e il lavoro di venti artigiani— dice Haas —. Ora però molti sono convinti di trovarsi davanti a una scultura fatta con pezzi di un vero albero». Intanto Haas ha ultimato «Colossus», un’enorme testa in vetroresina anch’essa ispirata ad Arcimboldo: «È una scultura grande il doppio dell’"Inverno", per la quale ho usato vere piante e una cascata funzionante, che quest’estate dovrebbe essere ospitata dal parco di Versailles»

In the Piazzetta Reale, to welcome visitors to view on Arcimboldo, there will be «Winter», a fiberglass sculpture 5 meters high of American artist Philip Haas, inspired by the «winter». "I wanted to create a work that at the same time was a tribute to a great, and had a value in itself, offering a 3D vision. But it was not easy: from the first draft prepared on your computer at its completion it took six months and twenty craftsmen — says Haas —. But now many are convinced of being in front of a sculpture made with pieces of a real tree». Meanwhile, Haas has completed "Colossus", a giant fiberglass head also inspired by Arcimboldo: "it is a big sculpture twice as" Winter ", for which I used real plants and a waterfall running, which this summer is expected to be hosted by the Park of Versailles»

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.
