Fantasy in action
Hieronymus Bosch was unique because of his bizarre imagination. Most of his paintings have biblical themes and are filled with fantastical figures and ambiguities. Many of his works are still a mystery to scientists and art lovers. Countless other painters were inspired by his work, including big names like Salvador Dalí, Jorg Immendorf and Robert Gober.
