Well, I am a huge fan of Hieronymus Bosch, as my username demonstrates. He was a very mysterious surrealist from the 16th century. His art is featured at the Museo Del Prado in Madrid, Spain where he enjoys the most popularity. He is said to have had a great influence on Dali and many other 20th century surrealists. Enough babble, here are some pictures....http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/bosch/delight/delightd.jpg

Now, the above pic is merely a tiny section in his tryptych(three panel painting):


Truly amazing stuff. Definetly worth a google.

And the crazy thing is, there undercurrents of anti-catholicism, yet it was the catholic church who paid him to do these!
