Boschmania Part Three

Final post on this topic.

The Last Judgement

I am rather partial to scenes of the fires furnaces of hell and the deep colours used by artists to create the scenes – I am particularly fond of John Martin for this reason – So Bosch is not a let down on this score.

This film from the Khan Academy gives a fantastic insight into this piece.

This segment was my favourite scene.

Visions of the Hereafter

Last, but not least, these four panels were truly stunning and the Ascent of the Blessed was quite beautiful.

End Note:

David Byrne went as well – not with me, I hasten to add and this is what he had to say.

Honestly, some of the nicest people have been to see this show – feel in good company on this one!
