Bosch As Never Seen Before! Delicious demons: Deciphering allegories in the complex, here is an enormous deluxe edition of the complete fantastical works of Hieronymus Bosch! In the midst of the realist-leaning artistic climate of the Late Gothic and Early Renaissance, Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch c. 14501516 was more than an anomaly. Boschs paintings are populated with grotesque scenes of fantastical creatures succumbing to all manner of human desire, fantasy, and angst. A Renaissance radical, Bosch turned his back on the realist preferences of contemporary painting, and instead created fantastical panel pictures characterized by grotesque creatures and bizarre visual symbolism. For some, his puzzling imagery was the vision of a dangerous sexual libertine. One of his greatest inventions was to take the figural and scenic representations known as drolleries, which use the monstrous and the grotesque to illustrate sin and evil, and to transfer them from the marginalia of illuminated manuscripts into large-format panel paintings. Alongside traditional hybrids of man and beast, such as centaurs, and mythological creatures such as unicorns, devils, dragons, and griffins, we also encounter countless mixed creatures freely invented by the artist. Many subsidiary scenes illustrate proverbs and figures of speech in common use in Boschs day. In his Temptation of St Anthony triptych, for example, the artist shows a messenger devil wearing ice skates, evoking the popular expression that the world was skating on icemeaning it had gone astray. In his pictorial translation of proverbs, in particular, Bosch was very much an innovator. With a mixture of religious humility and satanic wit, he illustrated both the joys of heaven and the cruelly imaginative tortures of hell. One of his most famous paintings is The Garden of Earthly Delights. Shown below is a huge fold-out spread, over 110 cm (almost 4 feet) long! Bosch whose real name was Jheronimus van Akenwas widely copied and imitated: the number of surviving works by Boschs followers exceeds the masters own production by more than tenfold. He continues to be seen as a visionary, a portrayer of dreams and nightmares, and the painter par excellence of hell and its demons. Featuring brand new photography of recently restored paintings, this exhaustive book, published in view of the upcoming 500th anniversary of Boschs death, covers the artists complete works, including many rarely seen sketches and etchings. Discover Boschs pictorial inventions in splendid reproductions with copious details and many fold out pages as shown below! Art historian and acknowledged Bosch expert Stefan Fischer examines just what it was about Bosch and his painting that proved so immensely influential. An incredibly beautiful, and VERY thorough book dedicated to showcasing this incredible talent, Taschen has produced an epic volume that exhaustively details Boschs surviving works. More than 300pp, it weighs over 10 pounds and measures a whopping 18 x 12.5 x 2 inches. I dare anyone to leave it on a coffee table and have someone NOT comment on it!
