Hieronymum van Aken known as Hieronymus Bosch was born in 1450 in 's-Hertogenbosch (which means the Duke's forest in Dutch) in a painter family who settled into Flanders two centuries earlier coming from Aix-la-Chapelle (Aachen in German).

In 1480, he got married to the daughter of a rich burgher, which made easy his admittance in a religious association dedicated to the Virgin's cult wich included some 40 influential citizens of 's-Hertogenbosch and some 7000 members from all over Europe.

Except a travel to Venice at the begining of the sixteenth century, he has been living in 's-Hertogenbosch during all his live, shared between his wife, his painting studio and the religious association.

However his fame rapidly spread out of borders of Flander (then under Spanish domination) and more specialy in Spain where his most important works are now located.

His paintings emit an aura of religious mysticism and heresy, where religion is face to face with sin and damnation, where Hell is blended with Paradise and satyric references are blended with Morals.

Corrupted humankind doomed to everlasting Hell for having colded shoulder to divine Law is illustrated by :
Seven deadly Sins (1475-1480 Prado Museum Madrid),
Ship of Fools (1490-1500 Louvre Museum Paris),
the Haywain (1500 Prado Museum Madrid),
the Garden of Earthly Delights (1503-1504 Prado Museum).
Other works show the example of Saints' life as unique way salvation such as Temptation of Saint Anthony (1500 Museum of Ancient Art in Lisbon).

His style not only reuses the caricatural figures from Middle Age's bestiaries but also innovates, which makes Bosch the first of the surrealists.

His style will be latter imitated by several painters of whom Pieter
Bruegel the Elder in particular with :
Mad Meg (1561 Mayer van den Bergh's Museum Antwerp)
the Triumph of Death (1562 Prado Museum Madrid)

the Fall of Rebel Angels (1562 Museo Real Bruselas).

Bosch is considered by the twentieth century's surrealist painters, specially Salvador Dali, as their pictural master.
See below photographies of the original of three works of Bosch : his Self-Portrait, Ship of Fools and Christ carrying the Cross.
