The strange and disturbing works of Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c1450–1516) have been compiled for the first time in a new book.
A Renaissance radical, Bosch turned his back on the realist preferences of contemporary painting, and instead created fantastical panel pictures characterised by grotesque creatures and bizarre visual symbolism. For some, his puzzling imagery was the vision of a dangerous sexual libertine.
Featuring brand new photography of recently restored paintings, Hieronymus Bosch: The Complete Works includes each known Bosch piece on an unprecedented scale. Copious details and a fold-out spread over one metre long allow readers to discover the intricacies of Bosch’s work.
The book also includes commentary from art historian and Bosch expert, Stefan Fischer.
