This could be a rebus depicting
a man for all seasons, an idiom which means "a man who is very successful in many different types of activity". The rebus depicts the word gent, meaning man, distributed among the four seasons.
EDIT: I originally used the wrong preposition in the idiom, although the page I linked to had it correct. A now-deleted comment informed me of this. Rosie F also noticed my mistake here.
Silenus has it almost right. The phrase is
a man for all seasons
a quotation from a remark made by Robert Whittington about Sir Thomas More. A Man For All Seasons is also the title of a 1966 film about More.
