'''Hieronymus Bosch''' (1450-1516) was a [[UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands Dutch]] [[TheMiddleAges medieval]] painter, best known for his colorful and grotesque depictions of {{Hell}}. He made several paintings about the subject and nobody has ever come close to his vivid and creepy visions of the place: Ugly [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] torturing people in complete agony and scenes which predate {{Surrealism}} by five centuries. Most of these strange NightmareFuel scenes are the product of symbolism that might be clear and understandable to a (noble or monied, and certainly educated) viewer in Bosch's age, but now, centuries later, can be difficult to decipher. Bosch's paintings show mankind in all of his corruptness and meanspiritness, doomed to end up in Hell, while only a few chosen ones will be allowed in {{Heaven}}. Even the Church is not spared in his fatal vision. He was able to depict north-west European society during {{the Late Middle Ages}} in a scathingly satirical and memorable light, one that continues to inspire artists to this day.

* PhallicWeapon: On the Hell panel of "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" a huge knife can been seen with two ears on the side. It looks suspiciously like...FreudWasRight.
