[Bosch's] paintings often represent visual translations of verbal metaphors and puns drawn from both biblical and folkloric sources.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 – 9 August 1516), was a Dutch painter. His work is known for its use of fantastic imagery to illustrate moral and religious concepts and narratives.
In the twentieth century, changing artistic tastes made artists like Bosch more palatable to the European imagination.
Some writers have found that strong parallels exist between the writing of Erasmus and the often savage painting of Bosch, both denouncing the abuses and scandalous behavior of many priests. Others, continued to think his work was created merely to titillate and amuse, much like the "grotteschi" of the Italian Renaissance.
In recent decades, scholars have come to view Bosch's vision as less fantastic, and accepted that his art reflects the orthodox religious belief systems of his age. His depictions of sinful humanity, his conceptions of Heaven and Hell are now seen as consistent with those of late medieval didactic literature and sermons. Bosch’s art was created to teach specific moral and spiritual truths in the manner of other Northern Renaissance figures. His paintings often represent visual translations of verbal metaphors and puns drawn from both biblical and folkloric sources.
