Stefan Fischer studied art history, history, and classical archaeology in Munster, Amsterdam, and Bonn. In 2009 he completed his doctoral thesis "Hieronymus Bosch: Malerei als Vision, Lehrbild und Kunstwerk." His specialist fields are Netherlandish painting of the 15th to the 17th centuries and museology.
"Superb color reproductions and numerous details allow us to examine Bosch's fantastic imagery with a clarity seldom possible, even in a museum gallery." * The Burlington Magazine *
