Five hundred years ago the artist that painted the world-famous Garden of Earthly Delights died in his home town of ’s-Hertogenbosch, which is why 2016 has been proclaimed Jheronimus Bosch Year. With his astonishing ingenuity and stylistic and technical mastery, Bosch is considered by art historians to be a grand master. There will be countless projects and exhibitions during this centenary year, an overview of which can be found at www.bosch500.nl/en.
The highlight of the Bosch Year is an exhibition that opens on Saturday 13 February, in the Noordbrabants Museum in ’s-Hertogenbosch: Jheronimus Bosch – Visions of a Genius. Never before has such a large selection of Bosch’s paintings and drawings been shown together. The exhibition can be viewed till 8 May.
