Description - Unknown Hieronymus Bosch by Kurt Falk

Produced with high quality reproductions and in carefully rendered colour true to that of the paintings, "The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch" teaches us how to look at paintings in an entirely new way - not through the framework of art history, or through the notion of a school of painting, rather through the spirit. The first part of this book opens up the spiritual vision of Hieronymus Bosch through a careful and descriptive attention to each of Bosch's paintings.Falk's analysis reveals the ways in which Bosch's paintings address creation, including the exalted spiritual realms and the fallen spiritual worlds. The details lead to the conclusion that Bosch had developed the capacity to know these worlds clairvoyantly. Falk's conclusions include a definitive connection to Rosicrucian influences and his discoveries include the presence of an onlooker figure in many of the Bosch paintings. This figure in fact corresponds with what is known by spiritual seers as the spirit-witness. This figure and its significance became important to Falk when he discovered an unknown painting by Bosch in a museum in Cairo.
