Around 100 historical records from Bosch’s lifetime are still extant, shedding light on his works, their commissions and his social position. Nils Büttner traces the career of a painter who worked for the highest aristocratic and courtly circles, and explains Bosch’s paintings against the background of contemporary culture and society. This fresh and insightful work on Bosch appears in the 500th anniversary of his death.
