Hieronymus Bosch scholar Kurt Falk teaches us how to see paintings in an entirely new way--not through the framework of art history or through the notion of a "school of painting," and not through the idea of a troubled or deranged genius, but through the eyes of the spirit, the look of the soul, and the visual embrace of love.
Kurt Falk has written a book that holds the possibility of altering altogether how we appreciate art. The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch can become a meditative tableau through which to enter a conscious relationship with the deepest and highest unknown aspects of ourselves, connecting with inner capacities usually available only to the most ardent spiritual seekers.

About the Author
Praise For The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch…
“A convenient chronology of forty-three paintings from Bosch’s oeuvre.… Falk analyzes the iconography in such detail, calling our attention to objects and creatures easily overlooked in smaller reproductions.… [The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch] transforms the quality of our attention, if not the content of our opinions."
—Jerry Cullum, editor at large of Art Papers
