From an artistic point of view, the world famous brilliant forerunner of surrealism was, in his day, unique and radically different. Hieronymus (Jeroen for short) Bosch was born during the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance in 's-Hertogenbosch, in the Duchy of Brabant. Hieronymus Bosch's style arises from the tradition of the book illuminations (manuscript illustrations from the Middle Ages). He is best know for his altar triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, filled with hybrid creates in heaven and hell, depicting warnings about improper, immoral behavior.
