Hieronymus Bosch (1450–1516) is, without any doubt, one of the most famous artists in the history of Netherlandish painting. This book explores his best-known paintings and drawings, showing them as never before in stunning, full-page details. It is organised by characteristic themes in Bosch’s work - faces, heaven and hell, the four elements, landscapes, and creatures both fantastic and monstrous.
Readers are treated to an exceptional view of masterpieces like The Garden of Earthly Delights, The Haywain Triptych, The Temptation of St Anthony and The Seven Deadly Sins. Till-Holger Borchert, Director of the Bruges Museums and an expert on Netherlandish art, guides us through the painter’s oeuvre in clear and accessible language, and from less familiar and surprising angles.
