At first I was disappointed he didn't single out "Garden" for lengthy and extended analysis and praise but after reading the book I realized that was the point. Gibson was showing the continuum of Bosch's work and "Garden" was in keeping with the rest of it and also that the iconography it contained was explainable within its medieval context.
The author Carl Linfert does a passable job of describing what's in a painting, but is unable to shed any light on what it means. Thank you, Mr Linfert, but all sighted individuals can see for themselves what you point out. Perhaps I expected too much from him. I wanted Carl Jung or at least Joseph Campbell and I got a plodding, pedantic art historian.
This book is an attractive addition to any art history collection, just don't expect any great insights.
