In this episode, we will explore the nightmarish worlds of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel. Bosch’s visions of Hell would influence countless generations of artists. Bruegel would pick up the themes of Bosch’s almost a half century later creating his own nightmarish visions of the apocalypse.
Well, I am back…sort of. No, there are not any new episodes though I am considering picking up with some. No promises yet. Life is still as busy and chaotic as ever. However, I have started an Instagram page for the podcast. So you may get a weekly dose of Renaissance art through Instagram @therenaissancepodcast. You may also follow my art page if you are interested in what I am doing with my personal creative endeavors @denisbyrdart. Both links are below so be sure to click on the links and follow me on social media.
In this episode we will explore the life and work of one of the Northern Renaissances most influential artists, Jan van Eyck. His work would be some of the most prized pieces of art in Northern Europe and become part of one of the greatest art thefts in history during World War Two.
We will look at the important artist and art historian Giorgio Vasari. A man whose works grace some of the most important cathedrals in Italy, such as the Dome of Florence cathedral, but who is best known for being the first art historian of the modern era.
Just a quick update on the podcast schedule. It looks like I won’t be able to get an episode out until the end of June. With school finishing up and much needed time at the easel, I have not had the time to devout to the podcast. My plan is to get back on a regular schedule over the summer. Thanks for your understanding and patience!
