Garden of Delights by Bosch

Garden of Delights by Hieronymus Bosch is an interesting painting. Bosch was a 15th century Dutch/Flemish painter, very religious, but many of his subjects were nude. His use of hyrid creatures, part human and part animal are strange. Angels thrown out of heaven fall into insects, salamnders, and devils. Bosch expresses universal truths, wisdom, and proverbs through his paintings. His use of deep perspecive and meticulously analyzed detail makes his works seem "modern". He has the ability to crowd dozens of events and characters into a single landscape. He often uses grotesque and satirical features, such as symbolism (The Stone Operation or Cure of Folly painting). more later.
