Hieronymus Bosch: Visions of Genius
'A once-in-a-lifetime show of works by the Dutch artist brings together some of the world’s great human masterpieces' Financial Times
'a heavenly host of delights on the road to hell' The Guardian
Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) lived and worked in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, where he created enigmatic paintings and drawings full of bizarre creatures, phantasmagoric monsters, and terrifying nightmares. He also depicted detailed landscapes and found inspiration in fundamental moral concepts: seduction, sin, and judgment.
This beautiful book accompanies a major exhibition on Bosch's work in his native city - the largest exhibition ever held on Hieronymus Bosch - and features important new research on his 25 known paintings and 20 drawings. The book, divided into six sections, covers the entirety of the artist's career. It discusses topics including Bosch's role as a draughtsman, his depictions of saints, and his visualisation of Judgment Day and the Hereafter. The book is handsomely illustrated by new photography taken by the Bosch Research and Conservation Project Team.
