Investigating stylistic, iconographic and thematic correspondences among images of the fantastic in art works ranging from an early 16th-century triptych by Hieronymus Bosch to surrealist abstractions by Roberto Matta, this catalogue presents fine reproductions and concise analyses of more than 100 paintings, drawings, prints and other works selected from a host of international collections, including compositions by Callot, Blake, Goya, Redon, Ernst, Man Ray, de Chirico, Brauner, Magritte and some 45 other artists. Ten wide-ranging essays explore the distinctive features of Bosch's paintings and of fantastic art in general through discussions of such subjects as the relationship between psychoanalysis and surrealism, the role of alchemy and hermetic philosophy in fantastic art, and the nature of the surrealist imagination.
