Hieronymus Bosch, Painter and Draughtsman: Catalogue Raisonné
Yale University Press
What a thing of beauty!
Hieronymus Bosch – Painter and Draughtsman Catalogue Raisonné is a comprehensive, opulently illustrated tome curated and put together by the heads behind the Hieronymus Bosch Research and Conservation Project.
It was originally published on the 500th anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch's death, after six years of in-depth research.
The Catalogue Raisonné compiles pretty much all of Bosch’s paintings and drawings underpinned by the most recent findings of science and research, which give his already astonishing oeuvre and his unrivaled approach to painting in the 15th century another dimension and should satisfy not only mere aficionados, but also scholars, connoisseurs and subject matter experts that have been researching what made Bosch tick.
Starting off with a detailed biography, reflections on what makes his approach and works unique are elaborated on, followed by a detailed history of how his paintings were conserved through the centuries and the technical implications that come with it as well as, and most importantly, the condition they are in today, it incorporates fact and information from a myriad of vetted sources.
Comparisons with other works, a detailed exploration of the symbolism behind the depictions and characters in Bosch’s paintings are followed by interpretations.
While drawing on a myriad of different, referenced sources, a distinct voice of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project comes through, which thoroughly examines and does not omit the assistance Bosch has worked with to complete his artworks.
Summa summarum, Hieronymus Bosch, Painter and Draughtsman is an indispensable addition for everyone interested in Bosch’s work not merely when it comes to the literature on the artist, but as a sound foundation for further research with the investigative voice of the BRCP being a reliable compass and guide.
