Flemish Gothic artist Hieronymus Bosch’s (1450 – 1516) brilliant nightmarish work graphically explores and exposes the human mind’s darkest fears. Unlike other artists of that period who portrayed serenity and reality, Bosch’s paintings are filled with chilling symbolism and frightening imagery. With masterful use of color and detail, Bosch’s haunting works, collected by King Phillip II of Spain, foreshadowed Surrealism, and still impact artists today.
