A compact, affordable introduction to one of the world’s most popular painters, looking at his work in incredible close-up detail
Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) is one of the most famous artists in the history of Netherlandish painting, if not the world. This book explores his best-known paintings and drawings, revealing them as never before in amazing full-page close-up details. Organized by characteristic themes in Bosch’s work, such as faces, heaven and hell, the four elements, landscapes, and creatures both fantastic and monstrous, it offers exceptional views of masterpieces like The Garden of Earthly Delights, The Haywain Triptych, The Temptation of St. Anthony and The Seven Deadly Sins. Till-Holger Borchert, an expert on Netherlandish art, guides readers through the painter’s work in clear and accessible language, and from less-familiar and surprising angles.
