“Jeroen Bosch: herdenkingstentoonstelling te ’s-Hertogenbosch” (T. Frenken) 1967
[in: Spiegel Historiael, vol. 2, nr. 9 (September 1967), pp. 475-479]
[Not mentioned in Gibson 1983]
By way of introduction to the exhibition that was held in ’s-Hertogenbosch from 16th September till 15th November 1967 Ton Frenken offers some general data about Bosch’s life and work. The modern interest in Bosch from a widely divergent public is probably the result of similarities between the artistic experience of his time and ours and between his art and the present one. Bosch has been called a ‘pop artist avant la lettre’, the ‘provo of the Middle Ages’ and the ‘painter of late-medieval foul language’, after he had already been interpreted – certainly not more appropriately – as an ‘early Surrealist’.
