Hieronymus Bosch: new insights into his life and work
To accompany a major exhibition at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Amsterdam, 20 scholars and specialists on the early Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch have been invited to contribute essays to this publication. Intended to cater to both a general interest readership and to art historians and researchers, the book places an emphasis on significant new scholarship, thus retaining its value amid diverse and evolving perceptions of Bosch and his work. Hieronymus Bosch was unique in creating works of symbolic fantasy using rich forms and colors in a way that makes him the ancestor, 500 years earlier, to the Surrealist painters of the early twentieth century. This volume will help make his work accessible to a wide range of readers, and will considerably advance the scholarship.
