The forest that hears and the field that sees-Hieronymus Bosch circa 1500
One of only three drawings that can definitely be attributed to the Dutch master who so influenced the Surrealists, The forest that hears and the field that sees is an excellent example  of the strangeness of the late medieval genius that produced the stunning and baffling The Garden of Earthly Delights

  1. What movement is this? I love this and it reminds me of my experience with nature. I ponder life and lose myself. I feel so much-like the trees hug me. I feel the warmth of the sun and a breeze that tells me yes I’m with you I see and I am listening. Nature’s always told me the truth. P.S. I have never really talked art with anyone before I mean I feel l can do that here. Thanks

    1. This is early Dutch school, the Northern Renaissance, which started slightly later than the Renaissance that was centre in the Italian city states. Styles ranged from realism and still lifes to the fantastical imagery of Bosch and Brueghel.
