Hieronymus Bosch

The art of Hieronymus Bosch

From some point of view, Hieronymus Bosch (1450?-1516) can be considered as the firts western painter to combine erotism and surrealism in his pictures, which often describe the delights of sex in a phantasmagorical manner. His extraordinary imagination makes him paint fantastic animals and impossible scenes, which we also find in some modern paintings of the surrealists. Though, as a matter of fact, he has nothing in common with the surrealistic theories of these contemporary painters. Bosch painted a world of fantasy with a strong erotic and even sado-masochist character.

The surrealistic character of his paintings

This artist has painted an incredible amount of things which do not exist in the reality, but are a product of his imagination, assembling real details in an unorthodox and totally non-realistic way.

The erotic character of his paintings

Several opuses of Bosch contain a host of erotic and sado-masochist details, particularly “The Temptation of St Antony”, “The Hay Wain”, “, The Garden of Earthly Delights”, “The Last Judgement”, etc.

In the center panel of “The Last Judgment”, there is a naked figure, probably a woman, pissing though a window into a barrel through an funnel, and finally a naked fat man is drinking the liquid which comes out of the barrel. Transposed in the style of the epoch, a naked man drinking the piss of a naked female is one of the favorite subjects of modern pornography! On the right panel of the same opus, one can see a naked man, pierced right through by a sword, with the beak of a bird, like a modern dildo, picked in his anus.

In “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, there is another naked man with, this time, a bunch of flowers stuck in his anus! In the same painting, one can see the inferior half of a naked man in erection, hiding his testicles with both hands.

On the right panel of one of his greatest chef d’oeuvres, “The Temptation of St Antony” (Museu Nacional de Arte Antigua, Lisbon, Portugal), one can see a hand on the sex of a naked woman, but the owner of this hand stands hided behind a tree!

Bosch and my logo

The center of interest of the largest painting of Hieronymus Bosch, “The Garden of Earthly Delights” (The Prado, Madrid, Spain), is the hand of a naked man on the sex of a naked woman. And indeed this peculiar detail stands precisely in the middle of the left-right symmetry of the center panel of the triptych, and at the crossing of this line of symmetry with the horizontal line made by the surface of the water.

  • I drew my inspiration from this particular detail for the left part “A” of my logo, as shown in the illustration below, because it symbolizes the erotic character of my work. (I’ve exchanged the woman’s face for another more beautiful one, taken from the same painting.)
  • The right part “B” of my logo illustrates the surrealistic character of my paintings by showing a totally impossible animal coming from the right panel of the same tryptych.

I consider myself as the spiritual heir of Hieronymus Bosch, for what concerns the two main and most typical characteristics of his oeuvre: on the same time erotic and surrealistic. That’s the reason of my logo.

On the technical point of view, I am the spiritual heir of the Old Flemish Masters, particularly John Van Eyck.
