The Disturbing Paintings of Hieronymus Bosch



There is no other artist quite like Hieronymus Bosch. During the European Renaissance, this Dutch painter was conjuring up nightmarish hellscapes, full of grotesque and nonsensical creatures. Particularly in his most famous piece, The Garden of Earthly Delights.

But why did this artist create such disturbing paintings? Are they the product of a lively imagination, imbued with symbolic religious meaning? Or are they the products of a troubled mind, afflicted by intense and frightening hallucinations? Let’s investigate the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and get a glimpse at the artist behind his strange and unsettling work.

I really enjoyed making this video and learnt lots during the making of it. I hope you all enjoyed it too.
