Hieronymous Bosch's (Dutch, c. 1450–1516) work is known for its use of fantastic, now-viewed as horrific, imagery to illustrate moral and religious concepts and narratives of the Roman Catholic church during that time. Balancing the images of hell and tormented sinners are the bucolic, delicate, and detailed landscapes he painted on the back of his triptychs typically created for display and use in churches.

Bosch was not a prolific artist. Only 30 to 40 of his works survive to day. In total, he signed only 7 paintings.However, art historians consider Bosch's paintings as directional for the much later work of the Surrealists, especially Salvador Dali.

This handy-sized book includes a detailed artist's biography and dozens of full-color illustrations featuring some of Bosch's most important works.
