Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch

Another superb series of ‘Exhibition On Screen’ by Seventh Art Productions. 

I had absolutely no knowledge of this painter, well, I’ve seen his paintings but they didn’t interest me at all. Wicked monsters, insects, dismembered bodies....
This film changed my rather misguided perceptions of his work. 

If you really look at his paintings closely, you’ll realise how contemporary his paintings are. As an critic said in the film, his paintings preceded surrealism well before Dali made it famous in the 20th century. 
I can also see a bit of Turner and Bacon as well. 
Bosch’s hellish visions expressed in his paintings were truly astonishing. 

He’s not a household name like his contemporaries, like Da Vinci, but, hopefully this film will help people recognise this unique artist and his limitless imagination.
