Devil in the Details

The complete works of Hieronymus Bosch
A bird-monster devouring sinners, naked bodies in tantric contortions, a pair of ears brandishing a sharpened blade: with just 20 paintings and nine drawings to his name, Netherlandish visionary Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516) secured his place as a pillar of art history. To this day, the painter par excellence of hell and its demons continues to puzzle and enthrall scholars, artists, designers, and musicians alike.

Based on the best-selling XXL edition, which saw TASCHEN commission new and exclusive photography of details and recently restored works, this large-scale monograph presents Bosch’s complete oeuvre. Texts from art historian and Bosch expert Stefan Fischer dissect the many compelling elements that populate each scene, from hybrid creatures of man and beast to Bosch’s pictorial use of proverbs and idioms. By tying together the elusive threads of his oeuvre into one exhaustive overview, this book reveals just what it was about Bosch and his painting that proved so immensely influential.

Features:
  • Impeccable full-page reproductions celebrating the artist’s staggering compositional scope
  • Enlarged details unveiling the most intricate and bizarre scenes as much as the unsuspected technical minutiae, from subtle brush-strokes to the grain of the canvas
  • A fold-out spread drawn from the legendary Last Judgement
  • A special chapter focusing on Bosch’s most famous work, the mesmerizing and terrifying triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights
The author

Stefan Fischer studied art history, history, and classical archaeology in Münster, Amsterdam, and Bonn. In 2009 he completed his doctoral thesis “Hieronymus Bosch: Malerei als Vision, Lehrbild und Kunstwerk.” His specialist fields are Netherlandish painting of the 15th to the 17th centuries and museology.

A wonderful book!

Helga Boom, October 28, 2021
The paintings of Bosch always stand out as bizarre with all the weird creatures big and small. But what do they all mean? I made up my own interpretation, but was I right? So I selected this book to help me. Full-page reproductions and enlarged details, together with texts from an art historian and Bosch expert, have proved to be very revealing. I keep being amazed over and over again. Highly recommended!

A Necessity for Bosch Fans!

This is a beautiful book - the reproductions are fabulous and it is a revelation to see the lesser-known, infrequently reproduced works.

Bosch goes to the movies

This book is astonishing, dives into the incredible world of an exceptional artists. Opening this masterpiece kidnaps the viewing reader into a movie-like atmosphere, showing full pictures and many detail views. Every picture has so many facettes, that it is impossible to understand a picture on the first sight. One feels like being in an endless dream. To discover Hieronymus Bosch has never been easier than through this beautifully made masterpiece of an art book.

Bosch's book

The book is amazing. Bosch's art is rich of details and the book allows you to enjoy them.

An immersive look into the work of Bosch- with beautiful detail of the original work

MarkG111, October 27, 2021
When I received this book, I had seen many Bosch paintings in person, so I had a healthy memory waiting to be filled with reminders... instead, the edition gave me further insight into many works I had not seen and details found again after not being able to visit museums during the pandemic. Seeing a work of art in person cannot be replaced, but this book definitely gives further understanding and detail you cannot always absorb while at a museum. Definitively, one of my favorite monographs.
