  8. 8. Jheronimus Bosch was an Early Netherlandish painter. He must have lived in two worlds simultaneously – the real one and the world of his imagination. His work is known for macabre and nightmarish depictions of hell, fantastic imagery, detailed landscapes, and illustrations of religious concepts and narratives. One of the motifs that regularly appear in his works is an owl. Hieronymus Bosch was probably the most owlish major artist of all time. All of them painted in a very realistic manner keep a watchful eye.
  9. 9. Jheronimus Bosch’s Owls There is a lot of speculation about what his owls ‘mean’, and how they should be read. This is not helped by the seemingly multiple and contradictory meanings which have been associated with owls. Sometimes they might signify wisdom, other times ignorance; they may bring the comfort of sleep at night, or be harbingers of murder and the occult. Around 1500 the owls were generally associated with menace and death and had an emblematic, moralistic significance. And it seems that Bosch generally used it as a symbol, placing it in contexts with an atmosphere of menace. Even to emphasize it’s threatening presence he sometimes drew it surrounded by other, hostile birds that try to drive the owl away.
