MADRID – The largest retrospective of Hieronymus Bosch paintings ever compiled. The new and exciting event is being held at the Prado Museum in Madrid in tribute to the 500th anniversary of the painter’s death. A not-to-be-missed exhibition.
Rafael Alberti said that he was “the greatest creator of dreams, of dreamlike nightmares, able to be burned into our memories forever.” You can experience this journey through dreams by visiting the exhibition boasting the main triptychs created by Hieronymus Bosch including The Garden of Earthly Delights and theTriptych of the Temptation of St. Anthony, on outstanding loan from the National Museum of Ancient Art in Lisbon.The exhibition is divided into five thematic sections, with a sixth section dedicated to drawings. As an introduction, you will be able to contextualise the painter and his work in his city, along with other artists working there at the same time, such as Alart du Hameel and Adriaen van Wessel. You will also be able to see how the painter influenced other artists and what it meant to have a taste for “the Boschian.”Paintings, along with other pieces like miniatures, drawings, etchings and engravings, will help introduce you to some of the themes he worked with, such as hell and sin.The name Hieronymus Bosch will be ringing out this season. Highly recommended.
