Lecture 3 - Tradition & Innovation: Hieronymus Bosch

Fri, May 28, 2021 · 11:00 AM · BST
About This Webinar

Already famed in his own lifetime for his distinctive paintings of hell scenes, monsters and his genre-like allegories, Bosch has intrigued viewers for centuries. Yet although his subject matter sets him apart from more mainstream artists, he was far from out of touch with contemporary developments, and in some respects ahead of them, notably in his remarkable treatment of light, his sensitive depictions of nature, and his unconventional painting technique. Looking at works such as the Garden of Earthly Delights, the Temptation of St Anthony and the Prado Adoration of the Magi, we shall explore not only Bosch’s fascinating imagery but also what makes him one of the greatest early Netherlandish painters.
