The Hip Fashions of H. Bosch
Details from the "Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch (Prado, Madrid)
Cherries and dice make good hats. Especially when you are wearing nothing else. Just ask Hieronymus Bosch. Oh, you can't...he's dead. Well, nevermind. He was ahead of his time obviously. These fashions he created are quite contemporary, don't you think?
"The extraordinary painter Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) stands apart from the prevailing Flemish traditions in painting. His style was unique, strikingly free, and his symbolism, unforgettably vivid, remains unparalleled to this day."
