The art of laughter in the age of Bosch and Brueghel



Walter S. Gibson

For many centuries the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel have been subjects of delight, fascination and wonder. Yet their meaning, in spite of many studies and widely diverse interpretations, often still seem to elude us. In the twelfth Gerson lecture prof. Walter Gibson, an internationally acclaimed expert on Bosch and Brueghel, discusses an aspect of their work that has received only scant attention: humor and laughter. Publication by the University of Groningen; distribution by Primavera Pers.
