Heebee Post #994 - Mr. Colori (The Museum of Instant Images) - Chaam - The Netherlands

 Mr. Colri sends in the second of three mail calls for 3 great Dutch painters. 2012 was Van Gogh - 2013 - Jheronimus (Aka: Hieronymus) Bosch is the current project. And finally, 2014 - Bruegel.  This particular call is entitled "Visions of Bosch".
 The above panel discusses the various parameters of the call.  If you are interested in showing at the exhibition in November, please remember that the work should relate to one of the works of Bosch.  Online gallery on the Interenet : (under construction).

I thought it might be a good idea to show an example of Bosch's disquieting work.  This is a small portion of the classic 3 paneled "Garden of Earthly Delights".  Anything is possible in his colorfully depraved depictions. Click on the image to get a better look.

 Here,  we see Bosch himself in a self portrait late in his life. Nothing is known of his personality or his thoughts or the meaning of his art. He left behind no letters or diaries.
Thank you very much Mr. Colori - I'm going to get started on a surrealistic Bosch style contribution for your super project.  See you in the mail!
