Luis Miguel, thank you for this wonderful presentation of the works of Bosch. Of all the artists of Surrealism, Bosch certainly was more detailed than any of them. The Garden is frightening as it depicts Heaven & H*ll, but you have to appreciate the fine details and to study it one would have to take small portions and enlarge them to focus on each scene. As you have probably guessed by now, I never studied art in any formal setting but spent much time at library going through the books of art. I have my favorites and appreciate the works of each one of them.
Several years ago I purchased a set of CD's featuring 4 phases of art with all the great masters, along with music. You inspired me to insert one and the first one, 'Crisis in the Concept of Reality' features Bosch!! It has the Garden and some closeups of it. What a coincidence!!
Thanks also Kathleen for prodding Luis to make this presentation. We spend too little time appreciating the arts. If our children were taught more cultural art than sports, we might have a better world. Music, art, writings, poetry, and science! Yes, science. I was watching Alan Alda yesterday on Fox - he is sponsoring a foundation based on all of these. I never knew he was accomplished in science and then took up acting.
When I first came to Adland and saw all the possibilities in the community - I wanted very much to have a forum based on Art. Of course, I learned right away that slot was taken. However, I believe we should have more and more forums on art and works of art and exhibits. Since Poetry was featured, we now have LOTS of poets with their own forums and I think it is great!! Why can't we have lots of Art forums with people exhibiting their own works - like our very talented Luis Miguel. It is wonderful that you are presenting the 'greats' but I think you are great and would love to see more of your work featured.
Never should I reply to a post this early in the morning, I write too much!!!
BEAUTIFUL, that is what I will say about the whole feature. Thanks again, my friend.
