hieronymus bosch - tabletop of the seven sense
 
This painting was intended to be displayed lying flat. With its banderoles containing biblical inscriptions and the four circular scenes set into a dark background in the corners, the format recalls designs of stained glass windows. It has been pointed out that the four scenes in the corners show the Last Four Things:

  • Death
  • Last Judgement
  • Hell
  • Heaven


  • In the center is the Resurrected Christ and the Seven Deadly Sins are graphically shown around him in the shape of a mirror. The tabletop was presumably used by its owner as an object of contemplation and reflection upon human - and personal - sinfullness. The seven sins are:

  • Ira (Anger)--> a woman restrains her angry, drunken husband
  • Superbia (Pride)--> a woman admires herself in a mirror held by a devil disguised as a servant
  • Luxuria (Lust)--> a young man & woman flirt, as they eat & drink while a jester entertains
  • Accidia (Sloth)--> a man dozes in front of a fire while a nun reminds him of his religious duty
  • Gula (Gluttony)--> a fat man and his fat child eat while a thin man drinks
  • Avarcia (Avarice)--> shows a corrupt judge taking a bribe
  • Invida (Envy)--> a bourgeois looks longingly at a wealthy aristocrat, envying his lifestyle
  •

    Zagros- have to confess I was unfamiliar with Farshchian's work, It's very good, seems to me he was heavily influenced by Art Nouveau movement 1880-1915.

    Thos epaintings are remeniscent of Safavid era works, whcih were inspired by earlier Sassanid works which had some sort of connection to China.

    Yes, thats the one and now I know why it's familiar. Had to study techniques and subject handling for Art History, way back when.  Gericault was one of the artists I chose.  Thanx for the reply, that would have bothered me all dayTongue

     Zagros, if you can, see if you can find some links that show Safavid and sassanid work and [this evening as I have tasks assigned by "superintendent" LOL] I'll post some Art nouveau and also work by Maxfield Parish. If your interested that is, it should be interesting to do a comparison. Farshchian's use of color is more typical of safavid, but general mood is reminiscent of Art Nou.  Which could have been inspired by Sassanid, Who knows?
