“With the ‘Rockman’ from ‘Bosch’ to ‘Van Oostsanen’” (Meinhard Michael) 2023

In this essay, which suffers from a lack of clear methodology and probably also from a poor translation from the German, Michael tries to convince the reader of the presence of a number of similar details and visual echoes in two drawings by the so-called Master of the Dresden William of Maleval Drawing, in some Bosch paintings and drawings, and in works from the circle of Jacob Cornelisz van Oostsanen. This leads to the hypothesis, admittedly of a highly speculative nature, that the draughtsman of the Maleval drawings was someone who first worked in the Bosch workshop and later in the Van Oostsanen workshop.
