Hieronymus Bosch ~ Gallery Notes

A journey into the sublime. A gallery of the most important works by Bosch. Certainly, for me, The Garden of Earthly Delights is the summit of the body of work - everything before and after was an ascent and descent - but that doesn't detract from the remaining pieces: they are important works in the history of art because of their originality and beauty. It's just that Delights is so good it eclipses anything by any artist, ever.

Bosch is an ethereal genius, his meaning, thankfully, lost in the midsts of time. Why do we have to understand everything? Why can't we let things be, not try to understand a meaning but simply marvel at the work. Modern life is rubbish: we know everything but understand nothing.

A medieval surrealist is how I think of him. A pioneer with patrons on LSD x 100. Of course, history won't back me up on that one but you get my drift. The godfather to Dali, Ernst and the writer Lautreamont, The creator of modern art. Do not understand it; let the work wash all over you.

Hieronymus Bosch Gallery ~ The Conjurer

This is related to The Seven Deadly Sins. It is a critical comment on his neighbours though the idea in it conjures up foolishness rather than the more severe failings in The Seven Deadly Sins. It is a story of a con man working a shell or bead game just within a town wall. The person taken in is bending down, concentrating totally on something that is not there. The pick pocket behind him is quite amusing to behold for he is looking up toward Heaven while at the same time is cutting loose the fool's purse.

But for me it. Is the reaction of the child that makes the picture or gives it its raison d'etre. The child is not interested in the conjurer; he's fascinated by the stupidity of the gullible man more than anything else. The child has all the wisdom of the world.

This is a Bosch picture where you will find almost no obscure symbolism. It is what it is.

Bosch Gallery ~ The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things

The Seven Deadly Sins is one of Bosch's earliest paintings. In it, he shows scenes of village life that describe the effect of each sin on human behaviour. The use of a small round medallion in each corner and, in the center, a sequence of scenes combined in a large circle had been common since the 14th century. It is the disk at the center which is the crux of the piece.

The Seven Sins come at us from a circle around an eye. Anger, Envy, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Lust or Excess, Pride and Vanity.

Bosch was a devout Catholic and feared for the fate of the soul at the Final Judgement.

The medallions at each corner of The Seven Deadly Sins are Death, Judgement, Hell, and Heaven.
