Can't decidesloth or Greed!eating cream cakes in bed (lol)
Saw a good art prog on T.V explaining the Garden of Earthly delights and other works of Bosch.Made me look at in a new light.
Hermes - I've been likewise afflicted lately:)Angela - The details on each "sin" in this work is amazing, disturbing and a bit hilarious as seen with modern eyes.
I hadn't seen this one before, but I love his work - thanks for sharing !
Sandie - I'd not seen it before either and you are welcome.
Beautiful thing. Captures the atmosphere of those years. Sin, God and the wonderful painting :))
considering the dinner I just ate, add gluttony to the mix as well...
I love Bosch...so much trippy imagery in his work!
Anna - it really does capture everyday life in his typical dark way. Susan - I'm sipping wine, so I probably need my own category:)Jno - the kind of dreams this man must have had!
I just love Bosch. There aren't enough artists like that anymore..
Margaret - he certainly packed his canvas full of imagery; so many details to fascinate the eye.
. . And the way I'm tucking into my morning oatmeal -- gluttony, definitely.Bosch's work is always so jam-cramed with detail, and some of his imagery makes me wonder if he had eaten some bread made with ergot infested wheat. He lived about 100 years after the great plague in Europe, which had a significant and long lasting impact on all aspects of society -- I think it is that which gives his images somewhat of a nightmare quality.
WOL - HA! I could probably pick a Sin-of-the-day as well. You may very well be right - there that trance-dream-hallucination-effect in his work. Bet he was one that looked under his bed before he went to sleep!
