This week’s gallery talks are a study of the current exhibition Beyond Bosch: The Afterlife of a Renaissance Master in Print. Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450−1516) captured the imaginations of his Renaissance patrons with paintings of hellfire and hybrid monsters, but it was the prints inspired by his work from generations of artists who came after him that played a significant role in establishing the Netherlandish master as a highly desirable brand in the growing print market of the 16th century.
Gallery talks begin at 11:00 am Thursday and 6:00 pm Friday in Sculpture Hall and will be led by the co-curators of Beyond Bosch, Marisa Bass, assistant professor of art history and archaeology at Washington University in Saint Louis, and Elizabeth Wyckoff, curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Saint Louis Art Museum. The free exhibition is installed in Galleries 234 and 235 and closes on July 19.
Gallery talks are free, but space is limited and available on a first-come basis. The exhibition is accompanied by a scholarly catalogue and was made possible with contributions by Bass and Wyckoff, as well as Matthijs Ilsink of the Bosch Research and Conservation Project and Peter Fuhring of the Fondation Custodia in Paris. Catalogues are available for purchase in the Museum shops.
