Hieronymus Bosch was one of the most unusual and creative painters in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. His work portrays both the divine and the unending pestilence and suffering of Hell. Bosch used symbolism like a master and created unique characters who were both human and bird, fish or demon. His detailed oils are so complex and populated with all manner of beast, human, saint and demon that they require intense study and contemplation. This book showcases a little of his intense imagery, brilliant color and composition and is a must for librarians and students of art in all its forms.
