Description

Christ Carrying the Cross

Bosch originally painted "Christ Carrying the Cross" around c. 1490.  This giant 48" by 44" (122 by 112 cm) hand painted reproduction oil painting is beautifully detailed and colorful.

Hieronymus, or Jerome Bosch (c. 1450-1516)

The extraordinary painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) stands apart from the prevailing Flemish traditions in painting. His style was unique, strikingly free, and his symbolism, unforgettably vivid, remains unparalleled to this day. Marvellous and terrifying, he expresses an intense pessimism and reflects the anxieties of his time, one of social and political upheaval.

Very little is known about Bosch, which somehow seems fitting since his work is so enigmatic. We know that he adopted the name of the Dutch town of s'Hertogenbosch (near Antwerp) as his own, that he belonged to an ultra-orthodox religious community called the Brotherhood of Mary, and that in his own day he was famous. Many of his paintings are devotional, and there are several on the theme of the Passion. He is specially famous for his fantastic, demon-filled works, one of which is "The Temptation of St. Anthony."
