Philip Haas, the American artist and film-maker has gone a step further and created four 15-foot high "portraits" of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter after Arcimbaldo's paintings, this time in 3D. I can see how they might appeal to Haas, as the pictures have a strange intensity and so do his films, which include Angels and Insects and Up at the Villa.
I'm not sure they're worth a traipse across London but if you're already visiting Dulwich Picture Gallery for one of their other exhibitions, it would be a shame not to go and have a look.
Inspired by the sculptures, Dulwich are running a Foodie Faces competition, which runs until the end of this month. Ideal for parents facing a glut of children and courgettes over the summer, there's actually no age limit, so you don't have to invent a child if the spirit moves you to enter. Just create your self-portrait from fruits, vegetables, homemade meals, pizzas, your favourite sweets or even a full English breakfast and you could win a place on one of the Gallery's art courses, as well as be displayed alongside Andy Warhol's paintings and Philip Haas's fibreglass sculptures.
