Portrait of an Artist: Hieronymus Bosch

Certainly one of the most mysterious and fascinating artists of all time, Bosch was a Netherlandish painter of the early Renaissance. In this program, we will look at his many remarkable religious paintings, his moralizing scenes of contemporary life, and his impact on later artists. Although not much is known about his life, Bosch’s works are impossible to forget as he created some of the most unique, fantastic, and sometimes terrifying images in all of Western art. Presented by Ann Shifflet, Instructor at Columbus College of Art and Design.
