Hiëronymus Bosch was painting frightful yet vaguely likable monsters long before computer games were ever invented, often with a touch of humor. His works are assertive statements about the mental illness that befalls any man who abandons the teachings of Christ. With a life that spanned 1450 to 1516, Bosch experienced the thick of the highly charged Renaissance and its wars of religion.
Medieval tradition and values were crumbling, paving the way to thrust man into a new universe where faith lost some of its power and much of its magic. Bosch set out to warn doubters of the perils awaiting all and any who lost their faith in God. His favorite allegories were hell, heaven and lust. He held that everyone had to choose between one of two options: it was either heaven or hell.
Bosch brilliantly exploited the symbolism of a wide range of fruits and plants to lend sexual overtones to his themes, which author Virginia Pitts Rembert meticulously deciphers to provide readers new insight into this fascinating artist and his works.
