HALLOWEEN ART HISTORY SPECIAL: The fantastical works of Hieronymus Bosch
Presented by Stella Grace Lyons
Monsters and morals, pleasure and sin, heaven and hell; the strange works of Hieronymus Bosch are considered an anomaly in the history of art. They are filled with grotesque images of fantastical creatures surrendering to lust, desire, fantasy and angst. His most famous work, the triptych ‘The Garden of Earthly Desires’ illustrates the danger of giving in to temptation, with a terrifying hell scene which even today is disturbing. This talk looks at arguably the most enigmatic figure in art history, and the fantastical works he created.
