Take home one of the most cult artists in history with this handy edition, presenting all known works of Hieronymus Bosch. Through full spreads and carefully curated details, the book surveys the artist’s compositional scope as well as his most compelling, if disturbing, inventions, from horse-skulled harp players to devils on ice skates.

Renaissance radical

The haunting visions of Hieronymus Bosch
Only 20 paintings and eight drawings are confidently assigned to Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516) but in their fantastical visions they have secured his place as one of the most cult artists in history. 500 years on from his death, his works continue to inspire scholars, artists, designers, and musicians, death metal band names and designer dresses.

This edition offers the complete and haunting Bosch world in one compact format. Through full spreads and carefully curated details, we explore the full reach and compelling inventions of the artist’s genius as well as disturbing imagination. We encounter his hybrid creatures, his nightmarish scenarios, his religious and moral framework, and his pictorial versions of contemporary proverbs and idioms. Along the way, art historian and Bosch expert Stefan Fischer reveals the most important themes and influences in these cryptic, mesmerizing masterpieces.
