BiographyErnst Bosch (Dutchman) was educated as a visual artist in the Netherlands, France and Italy. He's a pupil of Herman Berserik. To make a living during his student days he worked, mostly free-lance, for advertising agencies as illustrator. He also designed wall paper for particular collections and gave colour advices for an architects firm. Mainly he was busy with his own drawing and painting and with finding possibilities to show and sell his works of art. With a friend, being a printer he ran for about 5 years a silk-screen business.
Later he became active in the practice of teaching in art, the educational reform of artistic training and the educational policy concerning the visual arts. At the age of 39 he was asked for the directorship of the National Institute for Arts and Crafts (now named “Landelijk Ontwikkelingsinstituut Kunstzinnige Vorming" - LOKV) a development institute. Parallel with this several exhibitions of his works were held in art-institutes, galleries and the like... in The Netherlands and neighbouring countries.
For the advanced education schools he developed in coöperation with important art museums nation wide so called museum projects on "Life and Art in a medieval Town" (Utrecht), "Three different Castles", "Gouda – a Monument full of Monuments". "From Mesdag (Dutch impressionism) to Mondriaan" (The Hague) and "Rotterdam – a new appearance (Boymans – van Beuningen)". He also was involved in the establishment of a vocational school for museum staff (first Leiden, now Amsterdam - NL).
Ernst bosch was advisor for the new teacher training colleges and post graduate trainings on visual arts, on request of the University of Nijmegen. During that time he started to make extensive series of drawings and paintings like “La Bien–Aimée” (The Beloved), and art-projects like “The Jewels of the Madonna” which were exhibited in expo–halls and also in the Annual Fair Utrecht, the library of the universities of Nijmegen and Wageningen, and his own exhibition space.
The Dutch television made a special about his art (1/4 hr).
In 1983 he opened his own gallery in Arnhem where he worked and permanently exhibited his drawings, paintings and other works of art during more than 18 years. The opening was performed by the Secretary of State Drs. Van Leijenhorst. See the three huge art-projects shown on the preceding pages, created between 1983 and 1997.
Ernst Bosch gradually cut back his work outside the house and concentrated himself on his art only. Much of his work is used for marketing and public relations by the national and local government as well as by private companies. Several works were reproduced or incorporated in posters, books etc. Most of his works are in possession of private people and some are part of a collection. In 1992 H.M. Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands presented his art project "Human Power" at "Floariade 92" world fair.
In 1995 the binding "Gelders Vermogen" and the book “Beeldinslag”, about Ernst Bosch's art projects was issued by the Provincial Goverment of Gelderland and GOM - a development company.
In 1997 he started an experiment on a phenomenon he discovered in drawing and painting by the influence of the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and the ways and the content of contemporary art and the nowadays visual culture.
