An accessible survey on a genius artist, published to accompany the 500th anniversary of Bosch's death

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, and will feature 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 in detail Bosch's Pilgrimage of Life, Bosch and the Life of Christ, his role as a draughtsman, his depictions of saints, and his visualization of Judgment Day and the hereafter, among other topics, and is handsomely illustrated by new photography undertaken by the Bosch Research and Conservation Project Team.

Editorial Reviews

“This wonderfully approachable monograph will delight readers who know and love Bosch’s paintings, as well as those unfamiliar with them or with his equally remarkable drawings. Its splendid illustrations include numerous enlarged details that enable an understanding that even seeing the paintings in person cannot offer—and Bosch’s work is very rich in small-scale events. . . . Excellently written for the intelligent, generalist reader.”—Andrea Kirsh, Artblog
