Reviews

'Though the artist was claimed by both Surrealists and hippies as one of their own, Dixon makes a compelling case that much of his outlandish imagery can be explained by the science and morality of his times.' Chris Hirst, The Independent, 17 October 2003 UK ' - left me with the feeling I was understanding the significance of Bosch's arcane imagery for the first time.' Frank Whitford, Sunday Times, 30 November 2003 UK
