As cryptic as they are fascinating, Jerónimo Bosch 's masterpieces remain one of the art world's most enduring enigmas. Its intricate, allegorical and often surprising content has captivated not only art historians, but also fashion designers, rock stars, punk writers and musicians, as well as countless contemporary and modern artistic disciples.
Although rooted in the old Dutch tradition, Bosch developed a very suggestive and highly subjective style with which he captured in his works the heavenly joy of heaven and the grotesque tortures of hell. His most famous and most detailed executed work is The Garden of Earthly Delights . In this work, as well as in other well-known works of his, his artistic language combined religious humility with insightful wit, rendering pictorial versions of contemporary proverbs or set phrases.
This book weaves together the elusive threads of El Bosco's work to offer a brief vision of a disturbing and evocative pictorial world at the same time.
