An artist whose impressive career was recently fêted on the 500th anniversary of his death, Hieronymus Bosch (1477-1516) was one of the most iconic and ingenious of Netherlandish painters. He was known for the intricate details and curious creatures that populated his works, both features that become focal points in the richly illustrated digital volume The Complete Works of Hieronymus Bosch.
Spending much of his career in Hertogenbosch, Bosch painted an array of subject matter, but his compositional forays into the realm of the fantastical are the works for which he best known. The Garden of Earthly Delights (1495-1505), for example, is awash with mysterious and sometimes nightmarish entities that add vibrancy and dynamism to several otherwise conventional subjects. Such imagination pervaded a number of Bosch's later works and can be witnessed in full detail in this tantalizing digital edition. The Complete Works of Hieronymus Bosch allows readers access to detail images of compositions like The Garden of Earthly Delights that in turn encourage the reader to look closer and read more deeply into the history and impact of Bosch's dynamic career.
