Synopsis
A journey through the world of the enigmatic and popular artist, Hieronymus Bosch. It provides an analysis of his artwork as well as solutions to its apparent paradoxes. For decades, Hieronymus Bosch's brilliant, hallucinatory paintings have mystified viewers as well as art historians. Questions about the artist's use of symbols, his preoccupation with man's sinfulness and hell, and even details about Bosch's own life (1450-1516) have been the source of speculation and frustration. The culmination of 20 years of research by Wilhelm Fraenger, this volume reveals his discoveries about Bosch's patrons and the secular and religious climate in which he painted. The monograph looks beyond the bizarre nature of Bosch's images to decipher their true meanings and purpose. It features over 200 reproductions, inviting readers to enter the painter's phantasmagoric universe.
