I find Bosch particularly interesting due largely to the fantastic critters found in his more famous works. Bosch's innovation could almost be seen as a precursor to surrealism in some cases, and I find the imaginative representations to be quite thought-provoking.
|"The Garden of Earthly Delights"|
|Sketches of montsers|
|"Adoration of the Magi"|
In Bosch's "Adoration of the Magi," he channels the styling of Jan van Eyck and produces a piece representative of his final paintings. In "Adoration," he contrasts the colors of the robes to indicate the "duality of the eternal and the ephemeral" while framing the whole scene in a beautiful panoramic view inspired by the Master of Flemalle's Nativity (Tolnay).
