Book Description

Hiëronymus Bosch was painting terrifying yet strangely likable monsters, often with a touch of humour, long before computer games were invented.
His works are assertive statements about the mental illness that befalls any man who abandons the teachings of Christ. With a life that spanned 1450 to 1516, Bosch was born at the height of the Renaissance and witnessed its religious wars.
Medieval traditions and values were crumbling, paving the way to thrust man into a new universe where faith had lost its power and much of its magic. Bosch set out to warn doubters of the perils awaiting all and any who lost their faith in God.
His favorite allegories were hell, heaven and lust. He held that everyone had to choose between one of two options: either heaven or hell.
Bosch brilliantly exploited the symbolism of a wide range of fruits and plants to lend sexual overtones to his themes, which author Virginia Pitts Rembert meticulously deciphers to provide readers with new insight into this fascinating artist and his works.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointment April 11, 2006
Format:Hardcover
This book, at first glance was beautiful, but second glance showed that half of the images where out of focus completely.

Very unprofessional.

3.0 out of 5 stars I too see focus problems... February 23, 2007

Format:Hardcover
Interesting text, from armchair viewing in the store, but for a big Art Book many of the pictures are disappointing, due to slight blurriness.
