it was amazing
Read from May 26 to July 21, 2012

Part of my book-a-licious birthday gifts. Who knew that watching In Bruges was going to kick off an interest in Hieronymous Bosch that would lead to this gigantic book being one of the prize gifts I received? I tore open the paper and saw half of the back cover ... squealed "Hieronymous Bosch!" like a Twilight fan seeing Edward Cullen saunter by twinkling in the sunlight. This is a big brute of an art book but well worth it so far as Silver delves into Bosch's paintings and provides me with much food for thought and an education into looking at art.


I loved this book. I must have, because I read the whole darned thing. Am I any smarter? Probably not. But I know a lot more paintings that I love and it really came in handy when we watched The Mill and The Cross last weekend because the Breugel painting was right there to look at while we watched. Highly recommended.
