“Jeroen Bosch – Invidia; Tafelblad (7) – hier es nidichheit” (P. Gerlach O.F.M. Cap.) 1979
[in: Brabantia, 28 (1979), nr. 6, pp. 245-249]
[Reprinted in Gerlach 1988: 159-163]
[Also mentioned in Gibson 1983: 119 (E267)]
Gerlach focuses on the Invidia segment of the Prado Tabletop and pays quite a lot of attention to the way the figures are dressed. The young man to the left looks disappointed and is angry because he is being rejected as a lover by the girl. The man with the bone and the man carrying a sack envy the knight-like figure, who is a devil (because of the garden fork in his purse).
