Hieronymus Bosch Movie
I’ve always been fascinated by Hieronymus Bosch, so enjoyed learning more about his art from the Bosch Garden of Dreams documentary.
With some art you can take a quick glance, but that is not the case with the work of Hieronymus Bosch. There is so much going on in his paintings that each time I see them, I notice new details. That is especially true with his most famous painting, The Garden of Earthly Delights.
This single work of art tells many intertwined fantasy stories. Perhaps this Dutch painter had a cohesive story in mind, when he put the images together. However, he may have just expected each viewer to personalize the art according to their own mindset.
The documentary is deserving of the awards it has received, and has renewed my interest in the artist.
