“Bosch’s paintings become a whole new way of questioning―of questing―not in order to find an answer or solve a problem, but rather as a way of developing the inner capacity of letting things speak for themselves. That is, working with this book develops the spiritual quest of listening. Listening is fundamental to any spiritual practice, but it is even more so to the spiritual path depicted in so many different ways by Hieronymus Bosch.” ―Robert Sardello

Hieronymus Bosch scholar Kurt Falk teaches us how to see paintings in an entirely new way―not through the framework of art history or through the notion of a “school of painting,” and not through the idea of a troubled or deranged genius, but through the eyes of the spirit, the look of the soul, and the visual embrace of love.

Kurt Falk has written a book that holds the possibility of altering altogether how we appreciate art. The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch can become a meditative tableau through which to enter a conscious relationship with the deepest and highest unknown aspects of ourselves, connecting with inner capacities usually available only to the most ardent spiritual seekers.

About the Author:

Kurt Falk cofounded the Tobias School of Art in Forest Row, England, with his wife Anne Stockton. He was a teacher of art history. Prior to that, he had been a biodynamic farmer in Germany and, later, in Egypt. While in Cairo, he discovered the mysterious Bosch painting that forms the center of The Unknown Hieronymous Bosch. He researched extensively the paintings of Bosch until his death in 1986.

Review:

“A convenient chronology of forty-three paintings from Bosch’s oeuvre.... Falk analyzes the iconography in such detail, calling our attention to objects and creatures easily overlooked in smaller reproductions.... [The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch] transforms the quality of our attention, if not the content of our opinions."
—Jerry Cullum, editor at large of Art Papers

Book Description North Atlantic, 2008. 2-82. Condition: New. Inspired by the deep impression made on him when he discovered a Last Judgment in Cairo, Kurt Falk embarks on 'a strange and intrepid adventure' into the enigmatic, esoteric paintings of Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516). The book falls into two parts: the first provides a chronological outline of the artist's works, with commentary drawing attention to key details, while the second presents arguments for the authenticity of the Cairo Last Judgment, highlighting its connections to other Bosch paintings.

Book Description North Atlantic Books,U.S., United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The paintings of Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) have captivated and confounded observers for centuries, leading to wildly varying conclusions on the artist's spirituality. Kurt Falk presents the first analysis of Bosch's inner life in light of a hitherto unknown--and now lost--version of one of his seminal works, "The Last Judgment, "found by the author in Cairo in the mid-1930s. With an introduction by spiritual psychologist Robert Sardello, "The Unknown Hieronymus Bosch "presents an entirely new way of looking at this art--not through the framework of art history or the notion of a school of painting, but through the spirit. Falk's analysis reveals the ways in which Bosch addresses creation, including the exalted and fallen spiritual worlds so prevalent in his work. The author's conclusions are startling but persuasive: that Bosch had strong links to Rosicrucianism, that many of the paintings feature a curious onlooker figure we now understand as a spirit-witness, and that Bosch had in fact developed the capacity to clairvoyantly know the extraordinary worlds he portrays in such exacting detail. The book's high-quality reproductions, carefully rendered in the paintings' true colors, offer powerful visual support for the author's theories. Seller Inventory # NLF9781556437595
