Hieronymus Bosch, born Jeroen Anthonissen van Aken (1450 - 1516) was an Early Netherlandish painter of the late Middle Ages. His art prints utilised striking, yet sometimes seemingly surreal iconography to depict sin and humankind and show the consequences of these actions. Using images of demons, half-human animals and machines, Hieronymus Bosch perhaps wanted to evoke fear and confusion to portray the evil of man. Unfortunately, little is known of Bosch's life and his thoughts on the meaning of his art. He left behind no letters or diaries, and what has been identified has been taken from brief references to him in the municipal records. In addition, Hieronymus Bosch never dated his paintings and may have signed only some of them. If you are fascinated by the works of Hieronymus Boschart’s prints.
