'homage To Bosch' A Folk Art Face Jug By Ron Dahline For Sale
'Homage to Bosch' by face jug maker Ron Dahline
This piece is a tip of the hat to the 15th century painter Hieronymus Bosch, you just have to love his wacky imagination.
This face jug stands 9 inches tall, by 5 inches at the middle and holds 36 ounces of what floats your boat.
Bosch produced several triptychs. Among his most famous is The Garden of Earthly Delights. This painting, for which the original title has not survived, depicts paradise with Adam and Eve and many wondrous animals on the left panel, the earthly delights with nude figures and tremendous fruit and birds on the middle panel, and hell with depictions of fantastic punishments of the various types of sinners on the right panel. When the exterior panels are closed the viewer can see, painted in grisaille, God creating the Earth. These paintings—especially the Hell panel—are painted in a comparatively sketchy manner which contrasts with the traditional Flemish style of paintings, where the smooth surface—achieved by the application of multiple transparent glazes—conceals the brushwork. In this painting, and more powerfully in works such as his Temptation of St. Anthony, Bosch draws with his brush. Bosch also produced some of the first autonomous sketches in Northern Europe.
