Hieronymus Bosch the Complete Works by Stefan Fischer Book PDF Summary

ldquo;While featuring brand new photography of recently restored paintings, TASCHEN covers Boschrsquo;s complete and compelling works from grotesque scenes of fantastical creatures and beyondhellip;rdquo; Renaissance radical An earthly delight not to be missed In the midst of the realist-leaning artistic climate of the Late Gothic and Early Renaissance, Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450ndash;1516) was more than an anomaly. Boschrsquo;s paintings are populated with grotesque scenes of fantastical creatures succumbing to all manner of human desire, fantasy, and angst. 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 Boschrsquo;s 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 ldquo;skating on icerdquo;mdash;meaning it had gone astray. In his pictorial translation of proverbs, in particular, Bosch was very much an innovator. Boschmdash;whose real name was Jheronimus van Akenmdash;was widely copied and imitated: the number of surviving works by Boschrsquo;s followers exceeds the masterrsquo;s own production by more than tenfold. Today only 20 paintings and eight drawings are confidently assigned to Boschrsquo;s oeuvre. 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 book covers the artistrsquo;s complete works. Discover Boschrsquo;s pictorial inventions in splendid reproductions with copious details. Art historian and acknowledged Bosch expert Stefan Fischer examines just what it was about Bosch and his painting that proved so immensely influential.
