- Descripción:
Larry Silver, a professor of art history at the University of Pennsylvania, elucidates A"The Garden of Earthly Delightsa and the nightmarish circus it presents, as well as a host of Boschs other magnificent works. He draws upon new research into his subjects cultural milieu, belief system and artistic intentions. His explications of the paintings and their influence on other artists, most notably Pieter Bruegel the Elder, contain many fresh insights. . . . Bosch has 310 illustrations, most in full and high quality color, a vast bibliography and index. Its a big book and will well reward the many hours needed to digest it. -- Bloomsbury ReviewFour hundred little people frolic au naturel with overgrown songbirds and raspberries; a pudgy blue demon serenades a fashionable young couple with a tune piped through his own elongated nose; a knife-wielding set of disembodied ears stalks the damned through hell. The phantasmagoric imagery of Hieronymus Bosch (d. 1516) has been the source of widespread interest ever since the painters lifetime, and is still so enigmatic that scholars have theorized that it contains hidden astrological, alchemical, or even heretical meanings. Yet none of these theories has ever seemed to provide an adequate understanding of Boschs work. Moreover, the considerable professional success that the artist enjoyed in his native Hertogenbosch, not to mention his membership in a traditional religious organization, suggests that he pursued not a sinister secret agenda but simply his personal artistic vision.This intriguing new monograph by noted art historian Larry Silver interprets that artistic vision with admirable lucidity: it explains how Boschs understanding of human sin, morality, and punishment, which was conceived in an era of powerful apocalyptic expectation, shaped his dramatic visualizations of hell and of the temptations of even the most steadfast saints. Silvers account of Boschs artistic development is one of the first to benefit from recent technical investigations of the paintings, as well as from the reexamination of the artists drawings in relation to his paintings. Hieronymus Bosch is also unique in how securely it places its subjects work in the broader history of painting in the Low Countries: Silver identifies sources of Boschs iconography in a wide range of fifteenth-century panel paintings, manuscript illuminations, and prints, and describes how, despite their own religiousness, Boschs pictures helped inspire the secular landscape and genre scenes of later Netherlandish painters. Augmented by 310 illustrations, most in color, including many dramatic close-ups of Boschs intricately imagined nightmare scenes, this is the definitive book on a perennially fascinating artist.
