HIERONYMUS BOSCH - The Pig JB22
Jheronimus Bosch 1450-1516. The forerunner of surrealism, famous for his fantastic images in a hostile world full of mysticism from the Middle Ages.
The Garden of Eartly Delights
Hiëronymus Bosch shows us how we mortal souls, arisen from earthly paradise, are on our way to the atrocious ordeals of hell via our unchaste lives on earth.
The pig, indeed an indictment against the decay of clergy life, is tempting the man who is sitting beside him and it appears that he is drawing up a contract. Is the man possibly selling his soul?
