Genius, madman, or both, Flemish artist Hieronymus Bosch (1450–1516) was uniquely gifted in his ability to explore the dark rivers of the mind and release them onto canvas. Contrary to the paintings of other Flemish painters, which conveyed serenity and reality, Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” his most famous work, is rife with macabre allegorical symbolism and terrifying images of humanity’s fall from grace. Exhibiting brilliant colors and exceptional mastery of detail, Bosch’s disturbingly unforgettable artworks, collected by King Phillip II of Spain, were forerunners of Surrealism, and still powerfully influence artists today.
