Hieronymus Bosch: Master of the Bizarre

  • March 1, 2014 · 2:00 PM

Hieronymus Bosch (1450 – 1516) is a Dutch master of fine brush point painting and a peerless iconographer.  His work is characterized by visual and symbolic complexity, abstract concepts represented through nonsensical and often nightmarish imagery, delightfully implausible landscapes, and monsters to the likes of which Pixar can only aspire.

Hailed as the precursor of surrealism and explorer of the subconscious well before it was fashionable, Bosch is truly the insignis pictor (distinguished painter) who put his creativity at the service of portraying credulity, ignorance, and man’s vulnerability in the face of evil. 

Feel free to read any book or article on HB in advance of our conversation.  Most of all, however, I invite you to take a look at the artist's paintings.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
