Bosch's "Seven Capital Sins" showcased in Rome for the first time


The sin of ´wrath´ for example, is represented by a sword. Gluttony is seen as two people, who seem to be full, yet still hover over a table. Then, there´s a character who is too lazy to get up, representing sloth of course. In a unique way, this painting shows all these temptations, in one painting. 
“The color is striking as well as the distortion of the landscape. I find the piece to be very modern,  and to a certain point the characters are even comical. It represents all the vices human are tempted with, but it also shows the positive side of human nature.”

“What I like the most about Bosch is his allegory.”

“I like the image of the old woman who is starring at the mirror. It represents a type of vanity because time simply passes. But it also has a humorous touch because the woman who just stares at the mirror isn´t very beautiful to begin with.”

Bosch was definitely an expert in his field and younger generations took notice. His students made this oil painting titled ´The Charlatan´or swindler. 

It shows how a man is fooled by a swindler. While he´s distracted as a pickpocket takes his money. People take notice, but don´t say anything. Once again through these paintings, sin and human tendency is showcased through art.
