Bosch and Ernst, Visions of the Grim

For me Max Ernst stands comparison with Hieronymus Bosch. It might be said that they speak to one another across the centuries. Both share the same gruesome vision, with paintings populated by monstrous bird-like figures and other demons. There are depths of imagination, and wells of fear, well beyond the reaches of psychoanalysis and other such rational constructs.
