Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) produced what is unquestionably one of the most mysterious and evocative bodies of painting in the history of art. His fantastical scenes of grotesque creatures, demons and monsters have given rise to all kinds of speculation about his personal life and religious beliefs. Hieronymus Bosch: Complete Works contains reproductions of Bosch’s paintings and drawings, including his famous triptychs, and examines his work in the context of his times from a number of different angles of vision. Jos Koldeweij recreates the ambience of the urban culture in the medieval city of Hertogenbosch, where Bosch lived throughout his life; Paul Vandenbroeck explores Bosch’s social attitudes, a fascinating topic as the artist presented an unprecedented critique of the society of his times and the views of the well-to- do upper middle class, which he himself was a member of, on money and property, sin and pleasure; and Bernard Vermet considers the latest research and provides a new chronology of Bosch’s work.
