Copying the Master

Hieronymus Bosch's work is riddled with cripples and various disfigurements. It's hard to tell how much compassion there was in those drawings and paintings, as they served as allegories for moral corruption. (They are often depicted smiling!) But a certain fascination must have been there, judging from the wild variations on the human figure.

Great drawing, and interesting question re: compassion vs. fascination.
