The 20th century, with its great horrors, made mankind especially receptive to the art of Hieronymus Bosch, with its hallucinatory nightmare visions. The details of the imaginings of this 15th-century Dutch genius are now more easily available than ever before. Last week, I received in our offices a copy of Hieronymus Bosch: The Complete Works, just published by Taschen — and it’s one of the most magnificently produced volumes I’ve ever encountered. If you’ve ever been impressed by a reproduction of one of Bosch’s paintings, or even by one of his originals, this book will make you appreciate his entire oeuvre in a new way, in a level of detail that very few people have enjoyed since Bosch himself was working on it. Strongly recommended.
